20-21 May 2017, Berlin, Germany.
Deadline for applications: 1 February 2017!
The field of global history is not limited to the modern period, and we invite scholars of the early modern, medieval or classical periods to consider submitting their research. Moreover, global history not only challenges geographical borders, it also tends to transcend disciplinary demarcations. Accordingly, we welcome proposals from any academic field that has points of contact with history (e.g. art history, area studies, social sciences, etc). Furthermore, since global history has only been part of the academic landscape for a few years (at least in terms of institutions and study programmes) we are all more or less beginners in this quest for interconnections, entanglements and conjunctures. We also explicitly invite undergraduate students: if you've ever written a paper or essay in this field, this is the perfect place to present it! The goal is to exchange experiences and to work together in an open and non-competitive way.
The Global History Student Conference will take place at the Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut in Berlin.
The language of the conference is English, therefore please write your submissions in English. To register for the conference please follow this three step application process:
