Description

NETHOST is a 2-year new international research network program that through joint efforts will offer new insight into network hospitality. All researchers in the network bring to the network individual projects of early modern Eurasian trade. These projects offer important insight into the unstable relationship between, on the one hand, the risks and speculations of long-distance trade, and, on the other, practices and trajectories developing explicit attention to network hospitality. The NETHOST group intends to develop new knowledge and interpretations of the complexities of hosting and guesting developed from these practices and trajectories.

Layman's description

NETHOST er et nyt 2-årigt internationalt forskningsnetværk der gennem fælles
indsats vil udvikle et program for studiet af hospitalitet i transnationale netværk.
Alle forskere i NETHOST bidrager med individuelle projekter om Euro-Asiatisk
handel i 1700 tallet. Disse projekter giver indgående indblik i de risici og farer som
handel over store afstande er forbundet med. Samtidig også i de særlige
socialitetsformer og praksisser som muliggør netop handel med helt fremmede
kulturer. Formålet med NETHOST programmet er at udvikle ny viden om
kompleksiteten i gæst/vært relationen i disse praksisser. NETHOST er tværfaglig forbinder sociologi med genuin historie forskning. Det bidrager til at bringe forskning om og fra Danmark ind i en bred international debat om historiens betydning for vor seneste nutid.
