The workshop aims to establish a dialogue between diciplines by reflecting on the historical research practices across various fields. Many questions are of interest, such as, for example:
- what are dominant research paradigms? (eg. hagiography vs. systematic approach)
- what problems are being addressed? What is not being addressed?
- what sources are used? (eg. written documents vs. archaeological excavations)
- how does the selection of topics influence the selection of sources and vice-versa?
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss problems faced in their own research connected to these issues and exchange ideas with peers from other fields.
