Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt

Abstrakt

In this paper, we discuss how events can lead to historical change happening in societies. Taking into
consideration historical accounts, the mediators that take action and the motivation that lies behind
their actions. We use Martin Hollis’ Philosophy of Social Sciences approach to attempt to discover
how change can happen within a society.
Our focus of the project has been on analysing the case study of WomenCrossDMZ which happened
in May of 2015, when 30 international women crossed the Demilitarized zone between North and
South Korea in a peace walk.
We found that since the event happened in May of 2015, it is still too early to tell if the event has
had historical significance. Throughout the project we explore different possibilities in relation to
the creation of history.
