How can historians ‘do history’ in the 21st Century when issues relating to transformations, transfers and transdisciplinarity across traditional boundaries are on the research agenda? The Summer School addresses questions to both historiography and the resulting historical interpretations following this move beyond the nation-state.
Four thematic fields serve as a focus for this broad debate:
▫ Global conceptual and entangled history
▫ Transdisciplinarity and historical method
▫ Transnational institutions and their actors and structures
▫ Cultural and religious encounters and essentialisations
The 8th Nordic Summer School invites PhD students globally working in the field to apply for participation. Scholars excellent in their field will provide keynote lectures, discuss with and comment on the chosen PhD papers.
