Preparations for the biennial Dutch Historians’ Days (from the 22th tot the 24th of August 2019) are in full swing. Friday 23 August IHLIA will be present with a stand at the information market in the Weberfoyer of the Harmoniegebouw.
The three-day event, jointly organised by the Royal Netherlands Historical Society (KNHG) and the History Department of the University of Groningen (UG), are meant for everyone interested in history, professionally or otherwise.
The event showcases the many diverse and dynamic ways of doing history. Through a wide spectrum of lectures, debates and workshops the Historians’ Days tackle issues and challenges on the frontline of historical research and public debates. Keywords include networking, inspiration, orientation, career and relaxation.
The Historians’ Days are modelled on well-known, influential and professional conferences abroad, such as the annual gatherings of the American Historical Association and the biennial Historikertag of the Association of Historians of Germany.
The Historians’ Days 2019 evolve around the theme of Inclusive History, and promote diversity in participants, audience, program, stories, methods and presentations.
