GUIDELINES FOR THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will provide a collaborative space to discuss the potentialities of global history as a historical approach. With these aims we invite contributions corresponding to but not limited to the following broad themes:

  • Global history as a methodology and concept: Decentering eurocentrism, asymmetric dependencies, challenges to persisting binaries (east-west, micro-macro, local-global, free-unfree, and choice-coercion).
  • Global interconnections across historical periodization.
  • Global history of ideas and knowledge systems
  • Global history and spatiality: Trans local and transnational interactions, empires, colonies, cities, ports, and human settlements.
  • Global history of crises: Pandemics, ecology, war, and recession.
  • Global history and marginality: Caste, Race, Gender, and Sexuality,
  • Global history of Anthropocene and human-non-human interactions.
  • Global histories of capital, commodities, and technology.
  • Global histories of labour, migration, mediation, and forms of resistance.
