Connections. Global and Transnational History Seminar | Session III: Micro-spatial history. Towards a new Global History?
Praia de Botafogo, 190 - 08/05/2015 - 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.

Micro-spatial history. Towards a new Global History?

Christian G. De Vito, researcher at the University of Leicester, will give the thrid lecture, presenting his paper Micro-spatial history. Towards a new Global history? , followed by a debates session by professor Paulo Fontes, from the Laboratory on Labour Studies and Social Movements (LEMT) of FGV.

Christian G. De Vito is Research Associate at the University of Leicester and Honorary Fellow at the International Institute of Social History (IISH), Amsterdam. His current research addresses convict labour and convict circulation in late-colonial and post-colonial Latin America (ca. 1760s-1898). He has published extensively on global labour history, social history, and the history of punishment and psychiatry.
