From 6 November till 17 November Ida Jansson (University of Lund) and Joshua Ravenhill (University of York) are guests at the BGHS. Their visit is part of the desk exchange Lund-York-Bielefeld program.
Joshua Ravenhill is historian and works in his PhD thesis on migrants experiences in late medieval England. “It is interesting, that the decisions they made are comparable to the decisions migrants have to do today”, he explains.
Ida Jansson, also historian, examines the development of minority rights and minority protection from the First World War until today. Her case study are the Åland Islands, as part of the Swedish-speaking minority in Finland.
The Desk Exchange-Programme offers an opportunity for doctoral researchers from Lund, York and Bielefeld University to gain an insight into the academic system abroad, to come in contact with colleagues and researchers and to create international networks. During their stays the participants have the opportunity to take part in the study programmes of the graduate schools in Lund, York and Bielefeld, present their dissertation projects and meet with professors.
