Connections. Global and Transnational History Seminar | Session I: El mundo global: Una historia
Praia de Botafogo, 190. - 04/03/2015 - 14:00 - 16:00

In recent decades, under the title of "global" or "transnational", new historiographical debates and theoretical and methodological approaches of the social sciences take shape reflecting the new globalization phenomenon. Research in the North and South of the so-called Western World have known new dilemas and revaluated the connections between societies, cultures and spaces that were previously underestimated or simply disregarded.

The School of Social Sciences of FGV and the Center for International Relations organize this four-session seminar in order to create a forum for discussions between different research practices on the subject and to promote dialogue and exchange of experiences among researchers in this field, contributing to a greater internationalization of the Brazilian academic production.

El mundo global: Una historia.

Professor Hugo Fazio Vengoa, from the University of Los Andes, will give the first lecture,  presenting his new book El mundo global: Una historia (Bogotá, Uniandes, 2013), followed by a debate session by professor Alexandre Moreli of the Center for International Relations of FGV.

Vengoa has a PhD in Political Science from the Catholic University of Lovaina. He is a member of the History of the Present Group and his research interests include History of the Present, globalization and contemporary international relations. Some of his new publications are: La historia y el presente en el espejo de la globalización (Bogota: Uniandes - CESO, 2008) and El mundo y la globalización en la época de la historia global (Bogota: Siglo del Hombre - IEPRI, 2007).

The event will take place on March 4th, from 2pm to 4pm at auditorium 1014 - 10th floor.
