Connections | 2nd Global and Transnational History Seminar
Fundação Getulio Vargas, Praia de Botafogo, 190, Auditório, 1333 - 04/08/2015 - 14:00 - 12/11/2015 - 15:00

School of Social Sciences (CPDOC)

Organization: Center for International Relations of FGV

In recent decades, under the title of "global" or "transnational", new historiographical debates and theoretical and methodological approaches of the social sciences produced in the North Atlantic axis took shape reflecting the new globalization phenomenon, accelerated since the 1970s. On the South, at the same time, rather than simply import these new approaches to the reading of History and only renew a parish relationship with Europe or the United States, scholars have been developing new lines of thought which are not limited to Nation-State political boundaries.

Therefore, research in the North and in the South of the so called Western world have known new questions and revaluated connections and transfers between societies, cultures and spaces that have been so far underestimated or disregarded.

The main goal of this seminar is to create a forum at the School of Social Sciences of FGV that could become not only a space for researchers to present studies from the perspectives previously mentioned here, but also to understand the relationships and create a dialogue between different new practices of research in social sciences and to contribute to a greater internationalization of Brazilian academic production.
