This past Tuesday Åbo Akademi University was visited by historians from Dalarna University (Sweden). To kick the day off we had a morning meeting with introductions, interesting discussions and future planning. Later that noon, Hanna Hodacs gave a lecture on Early modern globalization for masters students.
In the afternoon we had a very fun and exciting research seminar with compelling text and discussions that lasted for several hours. Before wrapping up the day we still had time for a study circle session on recent developments concerning spatial theories. The resulting discussion from the study circle will soon appear as a podcast episode.
All in all it was a very inspiring day and furthered the collaboration between the two universities while producing new exciting ideas and material for the Global history lab.
