Today, public history is a global discipline, which considers the presence of the past—and the construction of history—outside academic settings. The practice of history has always been “public” in a way, but individual and collective memories are now invading the public sphere. Conflicting perceptions of the past, and the inability to forget, require professional mediation. Public historians answer the increasing demand for history worldwide and interpret the past with and for the public. Awareness of their global role fosters the internationalizing of public history.
