Hauptseminar Di 10:00 bis 12:00 wöchentlich 09.04.2024 bis 16.07.2024 Prof. Dr. Schenck  

The Global History Dialogues are an applied history blended-learning course that employs online and offline teaching and learning environments to bring together Potsdam students with learners on different campuses around the world, through the Global History Lab (https://ghl.princeton.edu), which has recently moved to the University of Cambirdge in the UK. The GHL currently brings together learners from more than twenty organizations around the world (for a list of the 2021-22 partners, see here https://ghl.princeton.edu/about-us/worldwide-partnerships). Students are being trained in oral historical methods to conduct their own history research projects and discuss the results within the class, during a digital international student conference (for last year’s see https://ghl.princeton.edu/hd-border-crossing-conference) and as a blog post on https://globalhistorydialogues.org. The topics that students choose to research are taken from their own surroundings, employing their local expertise in finding oral history interview partners to tell a global story about border corssing. The seminar sessions will take place in presence in Potsdam, an online learning platform is used to connect the Potsdam learners with the global parts of the course. The transnational, digital setup helps students not only access the class discussions and see topics from the perspectives of their diverse classmates, but also to problem solve together and gain confidence and facility interacting in a digital and international environment.

Students will gain:

• The opportunity to conduct their own research project from research idea to presentation and publication

• Experience in project design and implementation

• Understanding of and skills in oral history research methods and research ethics

• Intercultural exchange of ideas and reflection about global history narratives
