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
