Description

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 globalization and global trends; a methodology that analyses local, regional and supra-regional histories within global or transnational networks and ‘connectivity’; an approach that seeks to ‘de-centre’ Europe in world 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. We will also consider how global history might transform the writing of other fields, for example, economic history, cultural history, public history and museum studies. Four weekly seminars will be followed by two one-day workshops with multiple sessions dedicated to ‘Italy and the Spaces of Global History’ and ‘Global Public History’. 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.
