PhD researchers from the European University Institute, Florence have taken the initiative – they kicked of a series of interviews with historians from different national and institutional backgrounds on European history with a comparative and transnational focus. The series “Research in Dialogue – Dialogue in Research” is published by geschichte.transnational and HSozKult.
The latest interview has been published with Bernhard Struck, former director of our ITSH. The conversation addresses questions of direction of the field, the relevance of scales between micro and macro history, the neglected spatial element of transnational history, as well as potential tensions between national funding and an increasingly transnationally-driven research environment – and the world more broadly. Read the full interview here.
The ITSH and the EUI cooperate at the level of PhD exchanges via an Erasmus exchange link. If you are interested in coming to St Andrews or going to Florence, get in touch.
