Announcement: 10th Annual Seminar
From 5 till 7 July the 10th Annual Seminar to the topicInclusion and Exclusion: New Perspectives in History and Sociology takes place at the BGHS. The goal is to seek to open a dialogue among historians, sociologists, and correlated researchers in order to raise and discuss issues that relate to theoretical, methodological, and empirical challenges, while approaching aspects of inclusion and exclusion in past, present and future frameworks. Not only is there a great variety of such phenomena in different fields of present and past societies but also a broad spectrum of ways in which they can be described. Inclusion and Exclusion can be seen as forms of being (and not being) part of something or as concepts that ascribe a specifically structured order to the world.
The program consists of ten panel sessions on specific aspects and notions of inclusion/exclusion. In the panels, 35 discussants from 32 universities in 16 different countries will present their work. Alongside the panels, three keynote lectures will be delivered by distinguished international researchers: Srikala Naraian (Columbia University), Janine Dahinden (Université de Neuchâtel), and Rudolf Stichweh (Universität Bonn)
Everybody who is interested joining the Annual Seminar is cordially invited. Conference venue is the building X at Bielefeld University. The opening event will be on 5 July at 11 a.m. in room X-B2-103. The brochure with the schedule and further information is available at:
