    Abstract:
    Jubilees, anniversaries, commemoration days, public holidays, etc. Anniversaryitis. The coincidences of the calendar and the astronomical constellations that determine it are increasingly and, today, almost exclusively, defining when and with what our so-called historical consciousness occupies itself. If our current public history–our day-to-day practice of public self-understanding, heritage reassurance, and identity formation–is really so dominated by the calendar, what does this mean for those engaged in historical-political education?
