During the past few years, historians in many different parts of the world have sought to internationalize and globalize their perspectives on the past. Their work increasingly transcends the history of particular nation-states and instead investigates transnational, transoceanic and other long-distance connections throughout human history. As part of this newly emerging global orientation, a growing number of scholars have contributed to an already substantial body of methodological and conceptual literature on global history. However, these debates on transnational and global history are far from being global in their own discourses—quite to the contrary, they remain largely confined to national or at most regional conversations. The conference seeks to establish an international dialogue between different regional and conceptual approaches to global history by bringing together practitioners from all continents.
