Topic: A Historiography for the Third Millennium

Thesis timeframe: 2018–2020
Application deadline: 17 Jun 2018


History as a discipline is 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”. Theses topics related to historical methods, historiography and theory are welcome, especially related to global history and non-European history. Multi-disciplinarity and research cooperation across disciplinary fault lines is strongly encouraged, but not necessarily with a strong methodological underpinning.
