Due to COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 Public History Summer School that was to be held in Wrocław, Poland, is moved to being online-only event and will take place as previously planned, June 1-5. The workshops and sessions will be organised with the use of new technologies.

The Institute of History of the University of Wrocław, Poland (IH UWr), Zajezdnia (Depot) History Centre, and the International Federation for Public History invite students, PhD candidates and practitioners to share their research in the framework of the summer school.
