Preannoucement of Workshop: Remapping Centre and Periphery. Asymmetrical Encounters in European and Global Context, 1500-2000

Posted on

23 – 24 June 2016

University College London

This two-day workshop examines historical mechanisms of cultural and intellectual exchange across the globe. Historians often assume a one-directional transmission of knowledge, leading to the establishment of intellectual and political hierarchies between centers and peripheries. Instead, this workshop investigates the asymmetrical and multi-directional structure of these encounters within Europe as well as in global context.

More details and programme coming soon.

Organised by: UCL’s Centre for Transnational History, Asymenc & Translantis (Digital Humanities Approaches to Reference Cultures: The Emergence of the United States in Public Discourse in the Netherlands, 1890-1990)
