Workshop for Young Historians and Early Career Researchers

Global and Transnational History,

Networks and Violence

(18.07. – 19.07.2018)


Centre for the History of Violence, University of Newcastle

(2308 Callaghan, NSW)


The two-day workshop brings together young researchers (PhD candidates, Post-Docs) working on the following topics: Global and transnational history, networks and violence. The aim is to discuss theories about global and transnational history, network analysis in history and violence. Every participant will shortly present his own research area and then link his individual research project to both the theories and the projects of other participants. The core of the workshop are the discussions about the common denominators of the presented projects and theories.

Three expert talks will contribute more insights and perspectives throughout the workshop. As preparation for the workshop, the participants are expected to submit a short paper (concerning the individual research projects) and read a few articles provided by the organizers.

The workshop is based on experience from another workshop held in Zurich in January 2018. To see program and speakers of the previous workshop, please visit the website:
