Academics, journalists, artists and others engaged in civil society take part in Geschichtswerkstatt Europa to give a European dimension to a local, regional or national phenomenon. Each project requires its own set of methods, ranging from visual anthropology to European excursion-based methods. Essentially the aim is for an interdisciplinary exchange of perspectives through on-site discussion with those involved. Various methods can be applied. There is a brief introduction to the most important ones on this site.
