​Historiography has evolved towards a global context, creating a transnational consciousness. This global perspective has taken its place in the academy as a new dynamism which wipes away the obstacles that old fashioned national and Eurocentric history has put in the way. Writing history without borders and focusing on events with all their actors in an effort to create a view of the biggest picture possible, global history enjoys a different place among other historical disciplines.
In this historiographical moment, having a network of international students from 80 countries in the world, İstanbul Şehir University wants to meet you in a conference that is in line with its "global" academic mission. 
The History Department of İstanbul Şehir University invites you to participate in the "Global History Student Conference İstanbul 2018" to explore the new horizons in global, transnational, and connected histories. Undergraduate and fresh graduate students who are interested in the history of global connections, movements, spaces, actors, networks, ideas and intersections between the local and the global from antiquity to the present day can be part of this conference and address their critical reflections.
We also accept poster presentations on related approaches and research topics. Your topic could be described on a printed poster including photographs, graphics, and text. Each presenter can present only one poster. The American Historical Association’s guidelines for preparing a poster presentation are available via this link.
The conference will be three days (two days of panels and a tour of historical places on the third day) and each conference day will include keynote speakers. During the conference, you will have the opportunity to present your ideas and to meet successful scholars to create a network for your future careers. The papers of the participants will then be published on the conference website. The details of the program are as follows:

22 - 24 June 2018 
İstanbul Şehir University, İstanbul, Turkey.
