The Political History PhD Network, created in 2014 after the launch of the Association for Political History, is promoting since then the dialogue and the scientific exchange among international PhD students and candidates making their research in different fields of political history. As a part of this activity, the Network organizes its third annual workshop, dedicated to The Changing Frontiers of Political History.
The workshop aims to further the reflection started in the last years about the new tendencies of political history. Traditionally focused on the emergence of the European “modern” nation state, political history seems to adopt resolutely new perspectives crossing the borders of the national contexts, as well as those of classic chronological partitions. The development of a transnational political history involves taking into consideration phenomena of connection and transfers across state borders and among the local, the national and the global scale. This transformation raises crucial epistemological and methodological questions, concerning for instance the access to and the use of sources and the integration of national history within international fluxes. Fostering the debate among young scholars, the workshop will give the opportunity to compare and discuss different topics and methodological approaches in Early Modern and Modern History.
