What we talk about when we talk about history is a Student Conference for graduate students and PhD students who have worked and work on thesis and research projects in the field of Modern and Contemporary History.
The Student Conference aims to encourage dialogue between students and doctoral students from different backgrounds
on the methodology of historical research: from historiographic trends to the screening of sources, from the construction of a discourse of identity and memory to the intersection with philosophy and political doctrines, up to the “new” challenges and perspectives.
In recent years, the methodology of historical research has faced profound changes; the increasingly marked phenomena of globalization and digitization have placed the historian in front of the need to deal with non-traditional sources and with a new language. In this context, the questions “what is history for?” and “what does the ‘historical profession’ involve” have come up again today with great urgency.
The Call for Papers is aimed at students (in possess of a Bachelor degree) and PhD students (up to and including the Italian XXXII cycle – or who have not yet obtained their qualification) who wish to present their current research, focusing on the methodological aspects, the problems faced and the choices made in the course of their studies.
The following are the 5 thematic panels on the agenda, which each candidate can participate in as a presenter.
