THIRD EUROPEAN CONGRESS ON WORLD AND GLOBAL HISTORY
11-14 April 2011, London School of Economics & Political Science, Britain
Following the successful congresses organized by ENIUGH in Leipzig (2005) and Dresden (2008), the 2011 congress will be in London, hosted by the LSE. 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 wide-ranging 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.
- September 2009: announcement of the Call for Panels: proposals for panels will be invited, which may be complete or leaving space for further papers to be added.
