The Freedom of the Streets project, supported by the Amsterdam School of Historical Studies, invites early career researchers to participate in a writing summer school on the theme 'Mobilities in History,' at the University of Amsterdam.
In this two-week writing workshop, we want to explore what kind of sources and questions are needed to understand the different movements, representations and practices that constitute mobility.
We will provide historians with the opportunity to work on their individual writing in the context of shared reading sessions and group discussions. In the first week, we will discuss mobility in historical research through reading seminars and plan ample time for writing. In the second week, we will discuss and review each other’s work. During both weeks, we will create a shared work setting by providing a place to write.
Reading seminars will be hosted by Professor Anne Winter (Brussels), Professor Miki Sugiura (Tokyo/Warwick), and Dr Lisa Hellman (Berlin).
