The Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology hosts its first Annual Seminar in February 9-11, 2009, at Bielefeld University, titled "End of Messages? The State of the Dialogue between History and Sociology." Drawing on Bielefeld´s tradition in historical sociology, the conference invites doctoral students from both disciplines to present their research project in one of six themed workshops on semantics, knowledge, communication/media, social inequality, world society/transnational history and ethnicity. Moreover, the seminar offers lectures and discussions on the past and current relationship between history and sociology.
We welcome proposals that contribute to one of the workshop topics and are located at the interface between history and sociology.
The workshops are led by Urs Stäheli and Willibald Steinmetz (semantics), Alfons Bora and Sybilla Nikolow (knowledge), Tilmann Sutter and Jörg Requate (communication/media), Martin Diewald and Thomas Welskopp (social inequality), Bettina Heintz (invited) and Angelika Epple (world society/transnational history) and Joanna Pfaff-Czarnecka (invited) and Christian Büschges (ethnicity). For programme and further information visit our website: http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/bghs/programm/annual_seminar.html.
Doctoral students interested in participating send an exposé of their project of up to 600 words to firstname.lastname@example.org until Friday, November 14th. Please include name, academic affiliation and full address as well as the preferred workshop. Invited participants will be asked to prepare a paper of no more than ten pages which will be forwarded to the respective workshop leaders and other participants. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to six, three from each history and sociology. One third of the places are reserved for graduate students from outside Bielefeld. For these participants the BGHS provides grants to cover expenses for travel and accommodation.
