HISTORY '16 / III. International History Conference on Historiography

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'.

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.

All submitted papers are subject to double blind peer review. Conference proceedings are going to be available on DVD as e-book and DAKAM's digital library with an ISBN number before the conference and will be sent to be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholars.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: January 29, 2016
Deadline for registration: March 29, 2016
Deadline for full papers submission: April 1, 2016
