Due to the pandemic, the programme of the 53rd Deutscher Historikertag from 5 to 8 October 2021 from your host, Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich, will take place digitally via a conference platform unless otherwise noted. The interface of the conference platform is in German only. 

Access to the conference platform of the Historikertag requires a valid ticket, which can be booked under Registration. Your successful booking will provide you with further information (in German) on how and when to access the conference platform. On the conference platform you will have access to the part of the programme for which your ticket is valid. 

We are pleased to be able to present you with an extensive and exciting live programme on these pages.
