Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
The 7th Conference is hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Maastricht University. In its teaching and research, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences highlights major developments in societies and cultures as they have unfolded during the modern and contemporary eras. The aim is to gain understanding of the interrelationships of Europeanisation, globalisation, scientific and technological development, political change and cultural innovation. The Faculty is interested in how today’s societies cope with these challenges through, amongst others, practices of remembrance, governance techniques, strategies for managing knowledge, technologies and risks and ways of dealing with diversity and inequality. Yet, understanding our present world is impossible without insight into its past. This is why historical research serves as a key element of the Faculty’s scholarly and educational identity.
