Third European Congress on World and Global History 'Connections and Comparisons'
The overall theme will be Connections and Comparisons. Within this we can expect to see discussions of comparison, connection and entanglement between polities, societies, communities and individuals situated in, or spanning, different regions of the world. The perspectives will range from interactions between humanity and the environment, including over the very long term, through the cultural and economic histories of material and social life, to empires, large-scale crises, international organizations, and the intercontinental sources and consequences of revolutions, whether political, technological, social or ideological. The common emphasis is a commitment to transcending national historiographies and exploring different approaches to wideranging comparisons. While most panels will be substantive, some are likely to consider the various approaches to this endeavour, examining the methods and the problems involved. The conference will include keynote sessions as well as a series of parallel panels. We look to welcoming to London scholars practicing or interested in global, world and trans-national history from whatever discipline, based both within Europe and from around the world.
