The European Network in Universal and Global History take great pleasure in inviting you to the First European Congress of World- and Global History which will take place in Leipzig, Germany, from September 22-25, 2005.
The Congress will pursue three objectives:
It should enable as broad an overview as possible to be obtained of the numerous efforts being made on the subject in various European countries, whereby, in addition to research aspects, the question of how world and global history is taught at schools and universities, or should be taught, is also of interest.
The congress is an invitation to a mutual discussion of the intellectual traditions of world history documentation, which are viewed in the various European countries as positive reference or as a foil for the current debates in world and global history.
From the European perspective, world and global history is traditionally a discussion of the relationship to the regions beyond Europe, as well as a debate regarding the role of Europe or its sovereign states in international organisations and global networks. This also incorporates fundamental methodological questions such as that of the relationship between historical comparatistic and relationship and/or integrational history.
The official languages of the congress are English, German and French.
