Since the late 20th century, the concept of “Global History” has gained increasing popularity in Western academia. Global History generally denotes a perspective of history which includes various levels of analysis beyond the nation-state-focused mainstream of modern-era historiography. In recent decades, translations of the term and discussions of its relevance have increasingly entered the academic discourse in China as well.
The present workshop includes senior and post-doc researchers as keynote speakers and session chairs/commentators, as well as a number of upcoming researchers (mostly PhD candidates) as panel presenters, all with contributions related to the topic “China and Global History”.
