From 7 June – 9 June, the PhD Conference in History: Lund-York-Bielefeld took place. This year the venue of the conference was Lund, Sweden.
During the conference 23 doctoral researchers presented and discussed their research projects, benefetting from an international context. Seven of them were doctoral researchers from the BGHS of the Bielefeld University.
Aside of the presentation and discussion of the research projects, the program also contained two round-table discussions to the topics Writing entangled histories of Europe – breaking away from national histories and Making an academic career. The program of the conference was completed by shared conference dinners, and a tour across the campus of the Lund University, Lund Downtown and the cathedral.
Across national and epochal boundaries, and across historiographical the discussions were very productive, enlightening and amusing.
