Young historians with talent ! An 11th edition with multiple accents

On 14 October 2016, CegeSoma will once more give the floor to young and talented historians who graduated in 2015, authors of Master theses concerning the two World Wars and their aftermaths. The day will be organized around a number of key points: a series of debates with experts on the questions concerned; a focus on a selection of archive funds with promising research possibilities and, finally, an analysis of the subjects of contemporary history theses presented in Belgium over the last ten years.

To valorise in order to remember

The “Young Historians” study days have been organized since 2006. They aspire “give the floor” to authors of Master theses of quality and thus avoid their gathering dust in university depots or to get lost in the maze of the web, with no perspective of valorization. This study day also wants to create an opportunity for students of universities of the two communities to meet.


Rhythm and concision

For this 11th edition, CegeSoma has chosen an original approach: the Pecha Kucha. We would like to increase the awareness of young graduates regarding the importance of communication and we invite them to present the results of their research in this concise and rhythmic format which combines academic rigour and a sense of oral and visual communication.

You can find the programme and the abstracts of the presentations here.
