Writing history from below

We warmly invite you for the inaugural session of the national Research School Political History. This gathering provides ample opportunities for political historians to meet each other and to welcome our new research master students and PhD candidates. As always during our opening sessions, we discuss a specific theme relevant to our field. This year, the focus is on writing the history of “ordinary citizens” and their relation to power. Harm Kaal (Radboud University) will deliver an introduction, after which author Kristien Hemmerechts and journalist and author Marcia Luyten will share us their views on the theme. The ensuing discussion will be moderated by Marnix Beyen (University of Antwerp). Since the opening offers a sneak preview of the summer school scheduled at the end the academic year, all research master students and PhD candidates are highly encouraged to attend!
