I am Assistant Professor of History. Born in France, I received my Ph.D. at the European University Institute (Italy) and have taught in France, Ireland, Italy, and the United States. My research focuses on the different uses of the past, memory and museums, historic preservation, and the role of historians in the 20th century.
I have been involved in Public History and contributed to the rise of the International Public History movement. I am the President of the International Federation for Public History.
I have produced several public history projects such as History Harvests, online exhibits, and Documentary Films. Among the public history practices I teach are: museums (collection management and exhibit design), digital public history, media and new media production for historians. I am also the producer of "Theo's Choice", a 51-minute award-winning documentary film on French communities and bilingual education in Louisiana. Trailer available here.
I have published on Irish history, museums and collections, memory studies, and public history. I wrote the first single-authored textbook on Public History. Public History. A Textbook of Practice is the ideal companion for introduction to Public History courses.
I also wrote in French, Spanish, Italian, and English on various aspects of the internationalization of public history. See here for more details.
