NHM 2025 – Det 31. Nordiske Historikermøde

The 31st Congress of Nordic Historians will be held at the University of Iceland in Reykjavík, August 13-15, 2025. The Congress of Nordic Historians is an important meeting place for historians and all those who work with history in the Nordic region. It provides a unique opportunity for historians to explore both new developments in the field and develop possibilities for research and outreach.

The theme of the conference is BOUNDARIES and emphasizes the examination of dynamic processes, both throughout historical time periods and within the development of the subject of history.The concept of boundaries refers to how borders and boundaries are always in motion, both mentally and geopolitically, and they are often challenged by new developments, for example in technology and ideological shifts. There are countless examples of war, conflicts, and negotiations in relations to moving borders – and we can also look to cultural, political, and societal challenges to prevailing ideas about equality, identity, and human rights as instances where both individuals and institutions explore their own boundaries and borders. The boundaries of the field of history are also constantly in motion. Historians now work with a more varied group of sources than ever before resulting in various new actors and increasing inclusivity in historical research. Finally, historians are interdisciplinary in both their methodological approaches and their public outreach.

We look forward to seeing you in Reykjavík in August 2025!
