Call for papers:

The workshop will consist of presentations and discussions of the PhDs' papers and keynote lectures from invited researchers. The aim is to highlight the possibilities and potential problems that can arise from a multivoice/perspectivity in historical research, teaching and memoralization. We hope that the workshop will serve to inspire theoretical reflection and to heighten the awareness of the general aspects of the participants' own projects.

Before the course starts, each PhD student will prepare a paper for pre-circulation, addressing your research project preferably in relation to the course theme.
