AbstractFor more than a century, historians have attempted to transcend a national perspective on historical problems and develop various approaches to adequately deal with transnational phenomena of the past. The first part focusses on six prominent examples of such endeavours the second analyses key texts of of "global history", thereby idenfying the main themes and methods of the emerging field.
ObjectiveThrough intense reading and discussion of the theory oriented secondary literature, the participants will be introduced to one of the most exciting new fields of historical inquiry.
