Workshop: Is Global History Truly Global: Positionality of Historians

04.12.2014 - 06.12.2014

Berlin, 4 – 6 December: Venue: International Research Center "Work and Human Life Course in Global History (re:work)“, Humboldt University Berlin

Like every other form of historiography, global history is invariably influenced by the con-ditions under it emerges and the specific social context in which it is written. Even if the object of study is the world, that does not mean that interpretations are understood, let alone accepted, everywhere. As a result, the field of global history has been heralded with the call to multiply the perspectives, and to augment the range of interpretations by adding voices to the historiographical chorus.
Recognition of a multiplicity of views on the world is an important advance and a defining feature of much recent global history. For the field in its entirety, it requires recognition that many competing, and sometimes mutually exclusive, readings of the global past co-exist. This workshop attempts to further reflect upon the positionality of historians as a crucial aspect of writing global history.
