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? And 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 that exemplify concrete research informed by global historical perspectives or reflect relevant methodological considerations.
