Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture course offers an introduction into theories and methods of global history. According to approaches of global entanglement the role of personalities, single events and structures, micro and macro perspectives, short-term and long-term developments will be presented, social stratification and regional imbalances will be discussed. We will approach these questions by accepting the claim of a new global history to take account of developments, and their entanglement, in various world regions without Eurocentric bias.

The following approaches or theories of Global History will be dealt with: Encyclopedic overviews, empirical case studies, comparison, history of expansion, history of interaction, world systems analysis, postcolonial approaches etc. We will also look at the various spatial levels (local, regional, national, global) and discuss whether or not they represent a useful starting point for investigations into global themes. Last but not least selected events, regions, topics and historical developments will serve to discuss the choice and the benefit of theories and methods.
