History is a public issue.  Historical knowledge and practice is not limited to academic settings.  History is also produced and shared in a wide range of settings by professional and non-professional historians alike.  Museums and other exhibiting places, films and documentaries, historical novels, anniversaries and commemorations, re-enactments and living history, public policies, transitional justice commissions, television, radio, websites, and social media, are some of the venues in which history comes alive.  All these settings stimulate interaction and collaboration with large audiences, turning historians into public historians.
