The Public History as the New Citizen Science of the Past (PHACS) team at the C²DH calls for PhD applicants in Public History.

The Public History as the New Citizen Science of the Past (PHACS) team is looking for motivated and qualified candidates who are interested in developing, with our help, an application for an individual AFR PhD grant by the National Research Fund.

The doctoral project represents an excellent opportunity for qualified students to contribute to the knowledge and practice of public history in a European context.

If selected for an AFR, the PhD candidate will be offered a work contract (up to 4 years) and will work on their PhD thesis with supervisors in the PHACS team.

We particularly welcome applicants who would like to develop a PhD project along the research areas listed below, but other research proposals that contribute to diversify and push the field of public history further, on a practical or theoretical level, are also welcome.

  • History, theory and methodology of public history
  • Actors, means and infrastructures of collaboration, participation and shared authority in public history
  • Public history and/in cultural heritage institutions (museums, archives, foundations…)
  • Digital public history
