Simo Mikkonen's lecture "History as interpretation: from national to transnational history"

On 12th February Associate Professor Simo Mikkonen (the University of Jyväskylä, Finland), a guest lecturer of the faculty of history, held a public lecture "History as interpretation: from national to transnational history" organized within the International Week of HSE - Saint-Petersburg.
The lecture was devoted to the nature of history as well as the role of historical sources in research. The lecturer discussed ways historical knowledge is being formed, emphasizing the fact that history has always been a result of interpretation rather than given facts. He also showed how history was abused in order to justify someone`s activities or create a narrative used for forming a nation. Dr Mikkonen discussed the problem of creating transnational history, stressing the difference between world, global (entangled) and postocolonial history.
The lecture was open for a wider public and attracted students studying history, polical sciences, social sciences, and anthropology.
