This seminar aims to discuss the methodology, scope and subject matter of global history. Global history can be understood variously as either the history of global connections, the history of globalization or of entanglements across he globe; a methodology that analyses local, regional and supra-regional histories within global or transnational networks; an approach that seeks to ‘provincialize’ European approaches and ‘decolonise’ history; or a spatial perspective that shifts the level of enquiry away from the nation-state to other scales of analysis. The seminar will examine these different kinds of global history. It will also consider how global history might transform the writing of other fields, for example, cultural history, the history of gender, or the history of science and the environment. Four weekly seminars will be followed by three one-day workshops with multiple sessions dedicated to ‘Whose Global History? Narratives, Ownership and the Politics of a field’, ‘A Global History of Enslavement?’, and ‘Histories of Europe and Global Histories’. Researchers are expected to take an active part in the seminar discussion based on the readings for each session. In addition, sessions will be introduced by a brief presentation of the readings by one or two participants in the seminar.
