Global History Collaborative

The Global History Collaborative is based on a cooperation between the Berlin Global History program (FU Berlin & HU Berlin), the Ècoles des Hautes Ètudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris, Princeton University, and the University of Tokyo. It is dedicated to exploring the various trajectories of cross-border entanglements across the globe. Unlike programs that treat global history as an extension of imperial or economic history, our approach emphasizes the entanglements between specific regions and global structures. By focusing on comparisons, connections, and processes of global integration, the program helps students and scholars to understand the forces that have continuously shaped and restructured the world.


The Global History Collaborative includes:

  1. Circulation of senior and junior scholars between the participant sites in order to develop new ideas and collaboration in global history.
  2. Short-term (1-3 months) and long-term (one academic year) circulation of students and post-docs among the sites. Students work with preeminent historians at the Freie Universität Berlin, the EHESS in Paris, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Princeton University and the University of Tokyo.
  3. Regular Summer Institutes, conferences and workshops for colleagues and students from the partner institutions (Berlin, Paris, Princeton, Tokyo), that rotate around all four locations.
  4. Workshops on thematic and theoretical issues in global history.
