Global History Student Conference
May 21st-22nd 2016, Berlin
Call for Papers

In recent years, global history has become one of the most ambitious and most promising strands of historical research. The approach specifically targets relations, flows, and actors which transcend borders that for a long time had been assumed to be stable and impenetrable. It calls attention to the importance of trans-regional, transnational or trans-local connections and highlights the relevance of postcolonial theory to historiography.
But how can we actually “do global history” in practical terms? What are useful methods and techniques for researching and writing from a global perspective? How can global history complement but also challenge other disciplines; conversely, what critiques and new ideas can other disciplines bring to global history?
We - a group of students enrolled in the MA Global History at Humboldt University Berlin and Free University Berlin - would like to invite you to discuss these issues with us at the Global History Student Conference in Berlin by presenting your research projects to fellow students.
Global history not only challenges geographical borders, it also tends to transcend disciplinary demarcations. Accordingly, we welcome proposals from any academic field that has points of contact with history (e.g. art history, area studies, political science etc.). Furthermore, since global history has only been part of the European academic landscape for a few years (at least in terms of institutions and study programmes) we are all more or less beginners in this quest for interconnections, entanglements and conjunctures. The field of global history is not limited to the modern period, and we invite scholars of the early modern, medieval or classical periods to consider submitting their research. We also explicitly invite undergraduate students: if you’ve ever written a paper or essay in this field, this is the perfect place to present it! The goal is to exchange experiences and to work together in an open and non-competitive way.

New Book Publication on Work from a Global Historical Perspective

A new book has been published by scholar Andrea Komlosy, Professor at the Economic and Social History Institute at the University of Vienna. The book is a study on the nature of work from the 13th to the 21st century from a global perspective.

Based within economic and social history, the study looks at the changing nature of working conditions both from their diversity and their contradictions. This reveals simultaneity across time towards the twenty-first century and challenges the Euro-centric narrative of work, placing the concept in a more nuanced global perspective as a result.

To look at the contents of the book, please see here.
