Deutscher Historikertag goes fully digital

The German Historian’s Day (Historikertag) will be a completely digital event, streamed from 5 to 8 October from Munich. The Verband der Historiker und Historikerinnen Deutschlands (VHD), the German counterpart of KNHG, initially planned to organize a hybrid event. However, the current prospects related to the pandemic are highly uncertain, and therefore a fully digital program will be held. The theme of this 53rd edition will be Deutungskämpfe.
