Veertigjarig bestaan Geschiedenis-afdeling
We will invite you to reflect on the past, discuss the current state of the field, and explore future opportunities. For more information please download the flyer below.
Established in 1978, our department emphasized a social scientific approach to history, called "History of Society" / "Maatschappijgeschiedenis". Although the name of our teaching and research programmes has changed into "History", like other history departments in the Netherlands, our department continues to have a unique character. Generally, our research and teaching programmes aim to improve the understanding of current developments within societies around the globe by analysing both long-term processes and the specific experiences of people in the past.
The focus on such contemporary themes also characterizes this festive conference. Prominent scholars will discuss a topical theme of tremendous global consequences: they will reflect on the possible drivers of the current rise of nationalism and protectionism in a globalizing world.
In the attached invitation you will find more details regarding the conference programme.
If you would like to attend, please register before November 1 by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to welcome you on 9 November!
