Call for Posters
6th World Conference of the International Federation for Public History
Berlin, Germany, 17-21 August 2021
A separate call for poster proposals will be announced in early 2021.
The 6th World Conference of the International Federation for Public History and its partners, the Freie Universität Berlin, the National Council on Public History, the German Historical Association (VHD) and its working group on applied/public history (AGAG), the American Historical Association and the Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam (ZZF) are now accepting poster proposals for their upcoming joint public history conference in Berlin. The 2-hour poster session will either be on Thursday or Friday afternoons.
Posters offer an opportunity for those eager to share their public history projects using visual and material evidence. We are interested in displaying innovative public history projects that engage with relevant issues to the field. For a list of previous posters, you can consult our 2017 conference page.
Proposals must be submitted in English, using the form on the conference website https://www.ifph2020.org/submission-proposals/ and include: a) a short biography, b) a poster title, c) an abstract of no more than 1000 characters explaining the project and its relevance for public history, d) a brief explanation of special needs for the poster display, and e) a simple visual mock-up of the display (saved and uploaded as PDF). Posters will be no larger than 90 x 120 cm. Posters will be printed for free for you on site. Students whose poster is accepted will get a free conference registration.
If your presentation was already accepted for the general program you cannot submit a poster proposal!
The results of the Call for Posters will be announced no later than April 30, 2021.
