Third Conference History under Debate Santiago de Compostela. July 14-18 2004 We invite, for the third time - the first this new century - historians from around the world to make their pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela to reflect and debate together on the state of the discipline of history and its relationship with immediate history. The history being researched, taught and disseminated cannot - and must not - turn its back on the historical, and hence historiagraphic, acceleration we are witnessing. We are interested in the innovations on method and theory of history, historiography and the history/society relationship that have arisen since our Second Conference in 1999. We seek now to further elaborate a historiographic and global alternative for the 21st century that guarantees a new surge for the historical profession and the writing of history and which contributes to the historical end of a better future for the whole of humanity, we have the collaboration of <http://www.h-debate.com/congresos/3/entidades/menu.htm>340 academic entities of 27 countries for that with the thematic net.
