How is digital technology shaping history in public contexts? How do innovations in fields such as AI and immersive technologies shape how the public and researchers interact with history? What are the opportunities, challenges and risks in digital public history – and for historians using these technologies? Which stories – whose stories – are we telling in a digital history world, and which are being pushed out? What is the (digital) future for public history? Does an AI want to take your job? Will human historians one day be replaced by machines?

This two-day conference in Belfast in September 2024 welcomes proposals from researchers, students, practitioners and creatives about digital public history. The keynote speakers include Julia Laite and Alexa Alice Joubin.
