After two years of cancellations, we are extremely pleased to announce that the Global History Student Conference will return! The conference will be held from 24th to 26th June 2022, in Berlin, at the Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut of the Freie Universität.
The application deadline is 15th March 2022.
The language of the conference is English, therefore please write your submissions in English.
To apply for the conference, please follow this three-step application process:
● Submit the registration form by the 15th of March 2022. http://www.globalhistorystudentconference.wordpress.com/application
● Upload your 300-word abstract as a PDF file by the 15th of March 2022. http://www.globalhistorystudentconference.wordpress.com/application The abstract should be titled according to the following format: SurnameFirstnameShortTitle.pdf
● On acceptance of your paper, please send us a 2000-word summary for us to review by 30th of April 2022.
You can read the complete Call for Applications here.
Please note that the conference is intended to be held in-person in Berlin. At the moment, there is no intention of simultaneous digital participation (via Zoom or other software). The conference will be subject to any relevant COVID-19 guidelines maintained by the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and the German federal government.
Unfortunately, the conference team has made the decision to once again cancel the Global History Student Conference for 2021.
When the conference was founded by a group of students from the first cohorts of our Global History MA, they did so in the spirit of being able to foster connections with fellow global history enthusiasts in a vibrant, student-centered space. The restrictions and regulations in which many of us continue to operate under during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic render these kinds of connections, at least temporarily, unavailable or impossible.
When it is once again safe enough to gather with fellow students from across the world in Berlin to discuss and debate global history together, we will most certainly do so. For the moment, however, we must continue on as we have been for some months, from home office, digital classrooms, and online forms of engagement.
Our student journal, Global histories, remains ongoing. The next call for papers will open around June. You can find more information here: https://www.globalhistories.com/index.php/GHSJ
We’ll meet again someday!
With best regards,
Global History Student Conference Team
We would like to inform you that the Global History Student Conference for 2021 will be postponed. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and regulations from both our German universities and the German federal government, the conference will not take place in May, as it has in previous years. We hope to be able to hold the conference in some form later in 2021.
Future updates will be posted here, or on our Twitter account, @globalhistories.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to be able to welcome you to Berlin soon!
Global History Student Conference team
The new deadline for applying to the Conference is on February 17th!

Workshop 3 – The Historical Gaze: Reading Film as History
Time: Sunday, 10th of June, 09:00-11:00
By Brace Bargo
In this workshop, we will view and analyze films as archives of historical, social, and cultural information. Both film theory and historical practices will be discussed and applied to different historical and contemporary films. Together participants will engage in an academic analysis of these cultural texts and work out the benefits and complications of film as a source. The films will primarily deal with Germany and its colonial past, and contain both continuities and breaks in representation, allowing the discussion to follow narrative and cultural strands that perhaps go beyond the period in which the filmic texts were produced.
Brace Bargo is an M.A. student in the Global History program at Freie Universität. He is inspired by the interconnections between representations and identities in film, media, and culture. His primary research focus is the early cinema of Germany, however, the reverberations of these cultural productions reach beyond this limited scope and into many areas including gender and post-colonialism.
