Norwegian History Days is the largest national meeting place for professional historians in Norway. The conference is arranged annually, and alternates between different locations. For 25 years, the conference has been an important arena for academic debate and presentation of ongoing historical research. Norwegian History Days 2022 will take place in Bergen from 24 to 26 June.

Main Topic: Fragments and fragmentation

In recent years, societal change has received much attention from historians. Society is influenced by climate change, mass migration, renewed international rivalry, nationalism, fake news and new media, identity politics, and political change. Simultaneously, history as a discipline is undergoing international change. Within the discipline of history, the increasing focus on big data, global history, a material philological turn, and multi-perspectivity coincide with a renewed interest for traditional national political perspectives.

The main topic for Norwegian History Days 2022 is “fragments and fragmentation”, and the intention is to open up discussions related to whether patterns of change in history as a discipline and society can be understood as an expression of fragmentation. What is truly happening within the discipline of history – and in the world? Is «fragmentation» an appropriate term to describe the ongoing changes, or are grand narratives rather more relevant than ever? What will the role and function of the history discipline be in a time influenced by fragmentation?

We would like to invite everyone to join in discussing fragmentation, understood in the broadest sense. As always, other topics are also welcome. Norwegian History Days will be a common meeting place for professional historians in Norway. We welcome you to Bergen in 2022!
