Abstract

This online Summer School seeks to question what Global History is primarily about, who it is written by, and who it is written for. By questioning the epistemic inequalities and exclusionary processes that shape the field, and considering actors, conceptual tools and historical positions that originate from different parts of the world, we aim to outline a global history that is meaningfully shaped by perspectives from the Global South.

Announcement

Summer School in Global and Transnational History

Programme Description

Over the past two decades the field of Global History has become firmly embedded within the historical discipline. However, it has been less successful in moving beyond a Euro-American institutional rootedness and intellectual orientation. Critics have pointed to the Eurocentricity of its conceptual frameworks; the dominance of Anglophone scholarship produced by Global North-based researchers and presses; and the marginalisation of actors, concepts, and perspectives originating in the Global South. Taking these criticisms as a point of departure, this summer school seeks to question what Global History is primarily about, who it is written by, and who it is written for. By questioning the epistemic inequalities and exclusionary processes that shape the field, and considering actors, conceptual tools and historical positions that originate from different parts of the world, we aim to outline a global history that is meaningfully shaped by perspectives from the Global South.
