Aims, contents and method of the course

The doctoral seminar concentrates on historical comparisons and transfer history, two closely related approaches which are pivotal for overcoming the boundaries of national history. The readings will be based upon methodological discussions in the past decade that involved particularly specialists on European history, East European history and postcolonial history.

Assessment and permitted materials

Continuous attendance, participation in discussions, writing abstracts and papers

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Aside from the introduction into historical theory and methodology the seminar prepares successful applicants for the 5th Graduate Conference in European History (a CfP will be published and accessible at the webpage http://www.univie.ac.at/iog/perther.html - if you are interested in Graceh you need to apply) that is carried out in cooperation with the history departments at Central European University (Budapest) and the European University Institute (Florence). The topic of Graceh in the spring of 2011 will be "Transfers and Demarcations", i.e. nationalist and other counter-reactions against increasing international exchanges in modern Europe. Successful applicants from all three partner universities will be asked to present parts of their doctoral research in connection with the general topic of the conference

Examination topics

Our seminar offers training in presentations at international conferences and in preparing publications in international academic journals.
