The Association for Political History (APH) has been created in September 2014 for promoting Political History broadly defined as History of Institutions, Parties, Public policies, History of Ideas or Political Cultures and behaviors. APH welcomes historians working from different perspectives including the most recent and innovative ones such as transnational history. One of the main goals of APH is to strengthen international cooperation in the field of education and research, thus promoting the quality of research. Furthermore, APH will provide high quality training opportunities for PhD Candidates and advanced Masters in Political History.

Mission

The Association for Political History aims to strengthen international cooperation in the field of education and research, thus promoting the quality of research. Furthermore, APH will provide high-quality training opportunities for PhD candidates and advanced students pursuing Masters’ degrees in Political History.

While APH was inaugurated as a European initiative, it will develop an international profile.

The association defines Political History broadly and wishes to be inclusive, incorporating, amongst others, the History of Institutions, Parties, Public Policies, Political Cultures and Political Ideas. APH welcomes historians working from different perspectives, such as, for instance, Transnational History or Gender Studies.

An important activity of the APH is the organization of annual conferences. In 2017, the fifth annual APH Conference will be hosted by Jyväskylä University, in 2018 SciencesPo Paris, France, and in 2019 King’s College London. Joint educational initiatives will be taken as well as activities to facilitate the publication of the work of (young) historians.
