After the successful congresses of the European Network in Universal and Global History in Leipzig (2005), Dresden (2008) and London (2011), the next ENIUGH-congress will take place in Paris at the École normale supérieure and supported by the labex TransferS.
Under the theme “Encounters, Circulations and Conflicts”, the problematic opposition of centres and peripheries, which is still influential in historical research, will be challenged. The multitude of places and centres from where history is written and the plurality of the languages in which historical artefacts are conveyed will be analysed. We hope to stimulate a discussion on the meaning and relevance of relations, comparisons, transfers, and entanglements between states, peoples, communities, and individuals in a ‘long durée’ perspective.
We especially aim to involve colleagues from former colonies. In addition, the centenary of the beginning of the First World War provides the opportunity to address the destructive effects of international and global connectivity.
We further seek to integrate the historical interactions between man and environment, including cultural and economic processes as well as the various aspects of material and social life. The history of empires belongs to core topics, as do large-scale crises and the consequences of political, technological, and ideological revolutions. All in all, our intension is to transcend the confines of national history writing.
While the majority of the contributions will deal with particular historical subjects, some will concentrate on questions of theory and methodology. Besides the panels in the thematic sessions, roundtables and ple-naries will offer room for joint discussions.
We look forward to welcoming to Paris historians interested in transnational and global history, from European as well as from non-European countries, and representing various disciplines involved in the field, which range from political science to archaeology, from economic to art history.
