On October 8–10, 2018 the German Historical Institute Washington DC (GHI) will host the concluding conference of our research project. Organized by Simone Lässig, Zohar Shavit and Kerstin von der Krone the conference will provide an opportunity to discuss our findings with a group of international scholars from a variety of disciplines. We aim to situate our research within the broader historiographical context and the research on social and cultural transformations and ask more generally what role religion, education and knowledge played in responding to change.
