This Graduate Student Workshop organized by the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” at the University of Heidelberg
seeks to bring together scholars who are studying the history of newspapers or else intensively using historical newspapers as their primary sources. […] The conference would welcome contributions that will reach beyond national boundaries and pose questions to the traditional historiographical application of newspaper as primary sources. This event seeks to bring together scholars who demonstrate innovative methods in studying newspapers and to offer space to discuss different methodological approaches to analyzing transcultural elements of newspaper-making.
