Article by Irina Savelieva Published in Social Science Front

The article by Irina Savelieva, Director of the Poletayev Institute for Theoretical and Historical Studies in the Humanities was published in the Chinese journal ‘Social Science Front’.

The article focuses on the analysis of the content and the objectives of ‘public history’, the correlation between scientific and popular knowledge, conventions that represent the past outside the academic context, and processes of transfer of scientific knowledge from academic to media environment.

Thus, both cognitive aspects (conventional ways of statements about history, languages for description of the past) and social aspects(the formation of institutions, mechanisms for knowledge recognition, professional identification) connected with the research of ‘public history’ come into sight.
