Osterhammel's ‘The Transformation of the World’ is an impressive attempt to write a truly global history that combines a comparative view with a reflection on entanglements. It seeks to develop a narrative that calls into question the historiographical tradition that was long dominated by national histories.
In the seminar, we are interested in critically reflecting on the methodology and narratives the author develops in order to discuss our own historiographical approaches.
The seminar takes place online from 9:30-11:00 am on the following dates: 23rd of April and 7th of May:
- 23.04.21 - Chapter VIII: Imperial Systems and Nation-States
- 07.05.2021 - Chapter XII: Energy and Industry; Chapter XIV Networks (to be confirmed)
