Topics focussing on historiography, methodology, and pedagogy are also welcome. Session proposals should consist of clearly formulated questions around a well-defined theme. This theme should also relate to current research in relevant fields. The Committee selects Sessions from among submitted proposals. The number of accepted conference sessions will depend on submissions and funding.

Confirmed Conference Sessions
The organisers will notify Session contributors in September. Accepted conference Sessions will subsequently appear together in the NORDIK 2012 Call for Papers, posted on the NORDIK webpublication. The Chair collects and selects contributions for the Session. This responsibility includes informing panelists and organisers of their decisions. Deadline for submission of papers is December 1st, 2011.
Sessions generally include three papers, 20 minutes each, assembled by Chair. However the Committee welcomes diverse session formats, paper presentations as well as round table panels. The session ends with summary and questions prepared by a discussant. The Chair leads the subsequent open discussion.
More information will be given to Chairs (Discussants) on acceptance of a Session.
