Contemporary History and Public History (Version 2.0) (english version)

  • A growing international interest in history, often referred to as the "history boom", has been evident since the 1970s. This is reflected in a quantitative increase in the demand as well as the supply of a range of products communicating history, products aimed at a broad public and not at a limited readership with specialist training. The number of visitors to historical exhibits is increasing as new museums and memorials are opened and new monuments are dedicated.

The number of scholarly historical publications is growing, alongside works for general readers as well as historical novels.
