EVENT: Seminar: Where are the Archives of Global History? Online, 18 January 2021

In this opening roundtable, four senior scholars reflect on the central themes that will run through The archives of Global History in a time of international immobility Seminar series. Each with a different relationship to Global History as a field, the speakers will discuss archival practices from a practical and political perspective as well as an intellectual one, particularly in light of the pandemic. The guiding question, ‘Where are the archives of Global History?’ provokes us to think about the uneven distribution of sources used for writing global histories and the significance (or otherwise) of an archive’s ‘rootedness’. The roundtable will set the scene for subsequent seminars, where the emphasis will move towards inter-sectoral dialogue and early career scholars.
Seminar date: 18 January 2021, 04:00pm – 06:00pm (GMT).
Speakers: Katharina Oke (King’s College London), Kate Brown (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), G. A. Bremner (University of Edinburgh), Felix Ajiola (University of Lagos).
All welcome, this seminar is free to attend but booking is required. For more information and for booking please visit the seminar webpage.
This seminar is part of the new IHR Partnership Seminar series which will be launching in January 2021.
