Congres: Leiden International Conference Political History

The Dutch / Flemish Research School Political History organizes the second in a series of international PhD conferences on political history, and the first one with an open call. The three-day conference -on 4-6 September 2014- will cover a broad range of topics, reflecting the current transformations the field has experienced. There will be 16 workshops with 49 presentations. Furthermore,  Kiran Klaus Patel (Maastricht University) will deliver a keynote address on transnational perspectives. The conference starts with a discussion on the future of the history of politics with amongst other Willibald Steinmetz (Bielefeld University).

PhD candidates and researchers who would like to attend the conference, can contact Eveline van Rijswijk (Eveline.van.rijswijk@huygens.knaw.nl)

During the conference, a European association for political history will be established, which will organize future annual conferences. The initial meeting was held at IMT in Lucca (March 2014), and the 2015 conference will be in Bielefeld. Future conferences are planned for France, Aarhus University, the University of Jyväskylä and  King’s College University of London.

The keynote lecture and round table is free to the public – online registration is required: margit.van.der.steen@huygens.knaw.nl.
