Call for Submissions

Deadline: June 15th, 2018

In recent years, global history has become one of the most ambitious and promising strands of historical research. The approach targets relations, flows, and actors that challenge the assumption of the nation state as a natural and inevitable category of historical analysis. It calls attention to the importance of transnational, trans-regional, or trans-local connections and their influence on the past.

 

But how can we actually "do global history" in practical terms? To which issues and themes does global historical research add insight? How can global history complement but also challenge other disciplines; conversely, what critiques and new ideas can other disciplines bring to global history?


To contribute possible answers to these questions, we encourage the submission of research articles giving example of concrete research informed by global historical perspectives or reflecting relevant methodological considerations. The wide range of questions pursued in the research articles which have been published in the soon to be five editions of Global Histories so far may serve as a starting point for your consideration: http://www.globalhistories.com/index.php/GHSJ/issue/archive


We also welcome the submission of history conference reviews. Please review a history conference which you have attended in the last months, focusing on how the conference was intellectually conceptualized and how it related to wider trends within the discipline of history.
