Kai Willms Presents Paper at ISCH 2019 “Global Cultural History"
These days the 12th Annual Conference of the International Society for Cultural History (ISCH) takes place at Tallinn University, Estonia (26-29 June). Kai Willms, doctoral candidate of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies in Munich, does participate in this important international meeting and presents a paper based on his doctoral research.
In research and teaching, the vitality of cultural history is burgeoning, with a broad variety of interpretations of culture cross-fertilising between disciplines (history, human sciences, cultural studies, literature and media, and many more) and between different countries. In July 2007, a conference discussing Varieties of Cultural History was held in Aberdeen, Scotland. A large number of its participants agreed to form the International Society for Cultural History (ISCH) to promote the further development of cultural history. In 2019, the ISCH annual conference takes place at Tallinn University, Estonia (26-29 June).
On Saturday, 29 June, Kai Willms will be delivering the paper “Redrawing the American Mental Map: Polish Émigré Scholars in American Research on Eastern Europe, 1939–1989" in the panel “Cultural networks of civic engagement and of émigré scholars”. For attending the conference, Kai won a DAAD travel grant.
