Inhoud vak

The discipline of Global History (GH) is a response to increasing
awareness of the growing interconnectedness of the various regions of
the world, as a result of the circulation of people, goods and ideas. GH
has in the last two decades developed into a strong international,
dynamic and productive discipline in the field of history research and
education. The focus of this discipline is the deep underlying material
and sociocultural structural changes, which shaped the human experience.
It is a form of Meta History; a historical narrative that puts events,
phenomena and processes in a broad context. Characteristic of this
historical approach is that it does not focus specifically on
civilizations and nation states, but on processes, whereby thematic
research is focused on comparisons and differences within and between
the regions of the world. GH is non-Eurocentric, because all units of
study are treated equally, as such non-Western concepts and local
knowledge are included.
