HISTORY '16 / 3rd International History Conference


HISTORY '16 / 3rd International History Conference will be held in Istanbul on May 6-7, 2016. The conference will be coordinated by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center) and a special focus will be on 'Representing the Past: Historiography'.

The conference, now in its third year, is going to focus on historiography studies and the theory of history and thus a critical perspective towards the written historical narratives is expected to come into the picture. The research interests of historians change over time, and in recent decades there has been a shift away from traditional diplomatic, economic and political history toward newer approaches, especially social and cultural studies and toward historiograph. The conference welcomes studies on different approaches and a comparative view.

What is the influence of theory on historical research? How have the theories, perpectives and methods been changed throughout the centuries and according to culture and politics? Alongside the way historians looks at the history and historical research, the ideological background of historical narratives and their public perception will also be discussed. 

In addition to the historiography as the main topic archives, archival research and documentation will also be taken into consideration. As the way of extracting evidence from original archival records affects the end results of a study, historical studies should also be integrated with the theory of archival research.

We invite historians of scholars working on historiography to attend and submit a proposals to present their work at the HISTORY '16 Conference.



Conference proceedings are going to be published as an e-book with an ISBN number, which will be given to you in a DVD box. All presented articles are going to be available online on the DAKAM’s Digital Library.

Interview with Brigadier General Farzollah Shahin-Rad

One of them is punctuality. I went up and down the alley several times to meet this Ironman at his house. When I saw him from afar at military conferences, his sense of toughness was evident in demeanor.
