Have you ever wondered what happens behind the curtains of Drift 6? Each of the lecturers at our university conducts important research besides giving you tiresome lectures at 9am. However, we, the students, are often not aware of what the research entails. Have you ever thought about what Jewish Culture looked like in late Antiquity or why the famous Altai Princess was returned to the natives of the Russian Altai Republic eventually? All your burning questions shall be answered on the 23rd of February.
The UHSK Education Committee is organizing the annual Research Parade with the theme “Getting students involved in research”! On this teacher-packed day, one teacher from every section of the History Department will introduce you to some of the research that they are currently undertaking. In doing so, they will try to bridge the gap between research and education. What we often see is that the research done by the professors can actually be used in their own teaching formats. Therefore, the speakers will elaborate on how research can be more closely connected to education at this university.
Dr Liesbeth van de Grift, specialized in the History of International Relations, will be the key-note speaker of the day. She will introduce you to the speakers and give some insight on interdisciplinary research as well as her experience on how research can be integrated in education. After the speakers have introduced their research, Professor Oscar Gelderblom will lead a discussion on the theme of the confluence of research and education. The day ends with drinks, where students will get the chance to talk to teachers in an informal setting.
We are looking forward to seeing you all attend in massive numbers and hearing your contributions to the discussion!
