Microhistory and Global History (Venice, February 2016)
The Space Between: Connecting Microhistory and Global History
Venice, 26-28 February 2016
This conference was jointly organized by Maxine Berg, Global History and Culture Centre, Warwick and Dr. John-Paul Ghobrial, Faculty of History, University of Oxford. Thirty participants working over widely different fields of early modern history were invited from universities in the UK, Europe and the USA. These ranged from early career to senior scholars. Twenty-eight attended and participated; each person presented briefly on how an aspect of their research addressed the problematic of connecting two formerly distinct fields and methodologies. The meeting was a great success, and participants were all keen to continue discussion at future meetings. At the moment, a collection of essays arising from the workshop is being edited by John-Paul Ghobrial, which, subject to review of the final manuscript, will be published as a supplement issue in Past and Present.
