Global and Colonial History

Since national histories have been discredited as the only legitimate historiography, global history has been gaining momentum. Global history, however, is not merely 'history outside Europe'; and global means more than 'around the world'. Global history means historiography that tries to overcome Eurocentric perspectives on every level, and to focus increasingly on global complexity and interrelations. Thus, global historians tend to study topics such as colonialism, migration, trade, international cooperation, slavery, tourism, imperialism, globalization, knowledge transfers, etc.

The book series "Global and Colonial History" offers a common forum to discuss cutting-edge research on these issues. We consider colonial and imperial history to be a very important part of global history because it is exemplary of this historiography as a history of interrelations and because it challenges past and present power structures and hegemonic discourses on a methodological level.
