Congress
28 and 29 September 2017

A congress organised by the IHC with the aim to create a space of interdisciplinary sharing and reflection, valuing the importance of local history in contemporary historiography.

1st International Congress on Local History: Concept, practices and challenges in contemporaneity

 

Since mid-nineteenth century, local history has aroused the interest of historians and researchers who study the past of a particular region or community with the purpose of restoring their collective and individual memories. At the scientific level, this reality is manifested in the multiplication of master and doctoral thesis on themes related to local history, fostering innovative knowledge and giving birth to a new wave of historians interested in working on such topics.

The 1st International Congress on Local History proposes to create a space of interdisciplinary sharing and reflection, valuing the importance of local history in contemporary historiography, through a critical approach to the concept and opening a debate around research methodologies and practices. Contributing to problematize several issues inherent to a theoretical-methodological consideration, in the contemporary period, this initiative intends to promote an effort for the confluence of visions and solutions that hopefully will help to overcome everyone’s difficulties.
