Topic: A Historiography for the Third Millennium

Thesis timeframe: 2018–2020
Application deadline: 18 Oct 2017


​History as a discipline face are offered many new opportunities and faces new challenges as we inevitably move from a Western dominated world to a multi-polar one. The digital revolution opens new possibilities for methodological innovation, while politicians and the public demands that history becomes more “relevant” and “useful”. Multi-disciplinarily and research cooperation across disciplinary fault lines is strongly encouraged, but not necessarily with a strong methodological underpinning. Theses topics related to historical methods, historiography and theory are welcome, especially related to global history and non-European history.
