History beyond the walls of academia

The C²DH aims to take history beyond the academic confines of the University and to bring innovation to the field with its focus on digital public history.

Telling history in a “shared authority”-approach

Citizen science & public engagement

Public history initiatives at the centre reflect a democratisation-based approach to historical scholarship that questions authority and explores possibilities for critical engagement with members of the public.

Sharing authority is a hallmark of our approach. Public participation can enhance our understanding of the past.”
