History and the Media at the European University Institute

A combination of the creation of new media and an interest in the past has spurred discussion between museum curators, scholars, researchers, television presenters, and historians on how it has changed the communication landscape completely. In academia people are asking the important question of how historical narratives are being presented today in the globalized digital age.

The fascinating relationship between media and public history has increased interest in historical documentaries, museums that focus on particular eras, period films and novels, and more. A historian talks briefly about spinning narratives for a mass audience, how the digital age has change how we view history, and her personal way of adapting to this new change.

As a prestige institute the European University Institute has hosted events that allow discussion to take place to talk about the hot new topic and how modern academia looks like.
