European Journal of Life Writing




Unhinging the National Framework: New Developments in Transnational Life-Writing. Amsterdam, VU University, Friday, 9 December 9.30 – 15.00


Scholars from various disciplines will present their research on the lives of men and women whose work and networks questioned and transgressed 20th century’s national boundaries. Jointly the senior and junior researchers will show how these life-stories add new, transnational perspectives to the entangled histories of the 20th century, and may work as leverage instruments to unhinge methodological nationalism and colonial determinism.
