Topic: A Historiography for the Third Millennium

Thesis timeframe: 2018–2020
Application deadline: 22 May 2019


This MA topic is relevant for Master students interested in methodology and theory related to global and non-European history. History as a discipline is offered many new opportunities and faces new challenges. Politicians and the public demand that history should be "decolonised" and become more “relevant” and “useful”. New perspectives open up as we inevitably move from a Western dominated world to a multi-polar one. The digital revolution provides new possibilities for methodological innovation. For MA projects under this headline multi-disciplinary approaches and research cooperation across disciplinary fault lines is strongly encouraged
