Workshop 1 – How to Get Published as a Student
Room: A121
Time: Sunday, 10th of June, 09:00-11:00
By Alexandra Holmes / Paul Stocker
A workshop providing students with information on the different ways students can get published. We will go through different publishing formats from blogging to journal articles, providing information, help and tips by those who have done it and been in your position.
Paul Stocker is an early career researcher and Senior Fellow at the Centre for the Analysis of the Radical Right. He completed his Ph.D. in 2017, published his first book last year entitled English Uprising: Brexit and the Mainstreaming of the Far Right and is currently working on another monograph on the history of fascism in Britain to be released by Routledge. He has published his research on far right politics and British imperial history on a range of platforms including online blogs and peer-reviewed journals, written book reviews and review essays and recently publicised a co-edited collection of essays entitled The ‘New Man’ in Radical Right Ideology and Practice, 1919-1945.

Alex Holmes is an M.A. student in Global History, studying at the Freie Universität. She was the editor-in-chief of our own Global Histories journal from 2015 to 2017 and has published a book review of Essaying the Past: How to Read, Write, and Think about History in Vol.3 No.2 (2017) of our journal as well as a conference review of Perspectives on the History of ‘Prostitution’ in East-Central Europe for the German Historical Institute online in 2018. She continues to work as part of the journal team.

Workshop 2 – Museum Making
Room: A124
Time: Sunday, 10th of June, 09:00-11:00
By Prof. Wendy Shaw / Charlotte Sophie Kohrs

Outside of school and television, museums are one of the biggest sources of contextualised historical knowledge. However, museums as institutions have been considered more and more critically in the last decades. The workshop Museum Making tackles how we construct history: how have they shaped linear national narratives, and what is their potential for changing the public’s perception of history in a globalised world today, as well as in the future.
Prof. Dr. Wendy Shaw teaches Art History of Islamic Cultures at the Art History Institute of the Freie Universität Berlin since 2014. She completed her Ph.D. in Art History at the University of California (Los Angeles) in 1999 and gained her professorial degree in 2005 from the Interuniversity Council of the Republic of Turkey. Her work focuses on the historical and intellectual intersections of history, archeology, and museology and pays special attention to concepts, such as colonialism, post-colonialism, and modernity.

Charlotte Sophie Kohrs is a member of the Global History M.A. cohort of 2016 and will assist Prof. Dr. Shaw in this workshop. She graduated from the Europa-Universität Flensburg in early 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in English, History, and Pedagogy. Her research interests lie with the intellectual and identity histories of early modern Europe and North America.
