Public history and history didactics are two subdisciplines of history that focus on reaching the world outside the academy. The panel brings together public historians and specialists in history education in order to discuss relationship between public history and history didactics, in terms of general concepts (e.g. historical consciousness), research areas and questions, but also practices, such as how history museums work for education and for public history, and what professional competences each of the sub-disciplines foster that might be of mutual benefit.
