The 22nd International Congress of Historical Science, Jinan, Shangdong, Aug. 2015

Posted on Updated on

The International Congress of Historical Science started in 1900. It is held every five years and has already been held 21 times since the original congress. Being the most influential academic activity of historical science, it enjoys a reputation of “Olympics of historians”. The biggest number of participants in former sessions has surpassed 3000; though it is the first time for the congress to be held in Asia, we presume the participants this time more than any of former congresses. The 22nd ICHS will be held in Jinan, Shandong, the hometown of Confucius and Mencius.

The features of the 22nd ICHS

The 22nd ICHS, after the successfully-held Beijing Olympics, will again be an opportunity to show the long history and deep culture of China, and its recent economic and cultural booming to the world. It is a stage to show the history and cultures from all over the world and for the communication and research of them. In our preparations, we will set up an international coordination platform for historical research and a cyber-platform to show the history and culture of each country; and there will be a series of activities for the communication of history and different cultures, such as global historical and cultural weeks. There will be almost 50 topics for the 22nd ICHS. During the term of the congress, participants will fully enjoy the fascination of the history and culture of hospitable Shandong – a big cultural province in China.
