The GRACEH (Graduate Conference in European History) series was held for the first time in 2007 in Budapest, and is co-organized since 2010 by the Central European University, the European University Institute and the University of Vienna. Every year the conference is hosted by one of the three institutions.
The main objective of GRACEH is to create and articulate a network of graduate students and early career researchers in the field of European history. Covering topics that range from the early modern period to the recent past. It functions as a platform for historiographical, methodological, and theoretical discussion among peers and senior academics. Participants are encouraged to articulate research developments from their on-going thesis/dissertation projects within the framework of the conference themes.
Apart from students enrolled at our partner universities, we equally encourage and support students from other institutions to apply.
