Petros Apostolopoulos is a historian with expertise in digital and public history. He is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Digital History and Historiography working on the LuxTIME project. The team of the LuxTIME project collaborates with the main stakeholders of historical data in Luxembourg (archives, libraries, museums, research institutions, governmental bodies, and private associations) to build an interdisciplinary consortium for the analysis and interpretation of historical “big data.”

Petros holds a Ph.D. in Public History from North Carolina State University (2022). His dissertation, “Discussing the Past: The Production of Historical Knowledge on Wikipedia,” examines how historical knowledge is produced on Wikipedia. The project is based on multiple methodologies ranging from qualitative analysis of Wikipedia pages related to history, and surveys with Wikipedia editors, to quantitative analysis of participatory practices within the Wikipedia community.

During his Ph.D. studies, Petros worked as a Research Assistant in digital history projects at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) at Stanford University. He also holds an MA in History from VU University Amsterdam (2017) and a Bachelor in History from the University of Athens (2014).
