This lecture course presents key concepts, interpretations and topics of "Global" or "World History". We shall try to identify different currents and lines of interpretations in this strand of historiography. This should enable students to position their own studies and to think like a global historian. A corpus of texts is provided for reading in order to provide a broad view on the field and cast common ground for discussion.
