Summary

Because Globalization has become a conceptual problem and the source of epistemological discussions in almost all social sciences and humanities, this international workshop aims at questioning the changes (in scales, temporality) of historical research (or research on history) from different disciplinary viewpoints: sociology, history, anthropology and so on. The final purpose of this workshop is to offer a polylogical arena for researchers and Ph-D candidates on topical theme - globalization.

Announcement

Presentation

Globalization has become a buzzword for all social and historical sciences. It nevertheless introduces new regimes of historicity and territoriality of societies. With concepts such as“world-society”, or “global culture” or “global systems”, Globalization theories have first and foremost focused upon the forms of globalization. Historical dynamics have nevertheless always shaped theoretical models of “globalization”. The rise of a “Global history” aligningwith the “Global Turn” in social sciences and humanities supposes a cross-examination of the epistemological and methodological outcomes. The relocation of social sciences on the“local” and the opposite, yet corresponding, recalling of the “global” by historical sciences unveil a series of crucial debates on the very nature of History (as a site of investigation andas a narrative) and the new ways of tackling historical issues. Because Globalization has become a conceptual problem and the source of epistemological discussions in almost all social sciences and humanities, this international workshop aims at questioning the changes (in scales, temporality) of historical research (or research on history) from different disciplinary viewpoints: sociology, history, anthropology and so on. The final purpose of thisworkshop is to offer a polylogical arena for researchers and Ph-D candidates on topical theme - globalization.
