Writing Summer School: Mobilities in History


  • University of Amsterdam 48 Kloveniersburgwal Amsterdam, NH, 1012 CX Netherlands (map)

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).

For more information on the program and how to apply please see the poster.
