Organization Research School Political History OPG / Duitsland Instituut at the University of Amsterdam

The Dutch Research School for Political History (OPG) and the ‘Duitsland Insitituut Amsterdam’
organize a joint event in which we present new perspectives on modern political history.  In the
morning, senior scholars will discuss the newest trends in historiography: How did the horizons of
recent historical research expand with respect to content, space and methodology? How does local,
transnational and global history relate to each other? Dirk van Laak argues that spaces are
becoming more and more liquid in historiography. Wim van Meurs will present a new history of the
European Union. In the afternoon, four PhD-students will present their work: Wouter Linmans,
Benjamin Hirschfeld, Arjan Nuijten and Heleen over de Linden. After all, you will have a good
overview of topical issues in political history today. more »
