Mühlhausen/Thuringia, 11th – 13th February 2013
First scholarly conference of the Arbeitskreises „Reichsstadtgeschichtsforschung”, organised by the Friedrich Christian Lesser Foundation, the city of Mühlhausen, and the Historical Society of Mühlhausen.
The first conference of the Working Group is dedicated to an aspect uniting all former Imperial Cities: the Commemoration of the Imperial past. Taking a comparative perspective, the conference explores contexts, functions and effects of practices of commemoration.
