Giving Global Times their History
After the previous Congresses in Leipzig (2005) and Dresden (2008), the third European Congress on World and Global History will be held in London on April 14-17, 2011.
It is organized by the European Network in Universal and Global History (ENIUGH) with its headquarters at the University of Leipzig. Under this year's major theme „Connections and Comparisons" around 500 renowned historians from all over Europe will be debating in nearly 100 sections the latest research conducted on the Origins and Perspectives, Opportunities and Problems of Globalisation processes. Globalisation - both a key term and a taboo word of our times - will be placed in its historical context. A necessary prerequisite in the search for solutions to current challenges. Zeit: 14.04.2011 bis 17.04.2011
Ort: London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE, England If we are to remain capable of responding to the challenges of our times we must understand the long history of our globalised present. The new World and Global History established itself a few years ago in the international scientific landscape. This has led to a varied research field and to the progressive anchoring of global history perspectives in University teaching, among others in study programmes such as the EU-funded "Global Studies in a European Perspective", carried out by an international consortium from the universities of Vienna, Wrocław, Roskilde and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and conducted by the University of Leipzig
