Transnational perspectives have increasingly caught the attention of historians in recent years. The aim of this year’s summer school is to discuss the transnational perspective in relation to specific yet central research areas of contemporary history: Americanization, the Cold War, and Foreign Aid. These areas of contemporary historiography unite cultural and political approaches to the study of history. As such they are eminently suited to the twin purpose of the summer school: to broaden the knowledge of the participants on central issues of contemporary historiography and history by means of lectures and discussions and through workshop presentations and discussions with senior scholars and fellow students of papers delivered by the participating Ph.D.-students (max 25).
