Conflicting subjects

Between clash and recognition

We announce the publication of the new call for papers!

The main topic of the Conference will be the conflict for recognition and its multiple declinations throughout history, in particular between the Middle Age and Contemporary History.

We believe that this topic could stimulate a great deal the dialogue among graduate and phd students from Italy or abroad!

In the meantime we invite you to write us at studentconference@unipv.it for any clarification.

The project

The idea of organizing a student conference was born in the spring of 2019 in the corridors of the University of Pavia.

A heterogeneous group of PhD students began to wonder: what does it mean to us to deal with historiographical issues? What do our researches have in common? What do we talk about when we talk about history?

It was from these questions that emerged the need to develop a horizontal space in which to compare various historiographical approaches and develop new interpretations of historical matters.

The second edition deals with the topic of the conflicts for recogniction. The conference is under development and it is scheduled for May 2021.
