Atlantic Worlds between the Global and the National
Universität Bayreuth, Germany, via Zoom
26 August – 30 August 2021
The corona virus, BREXIT, “America first” and many other current developments and crises bring up the crucial question how much globalisation on the one hand and nationalism, states or nation-states on the other have been driving forces in historical processes. However, are the global and the national purely antagonistic – or do they also enable and further each other? Where do local, regional, transregional processes come into play – and how?
With the 7th Summer Academy of Atlantic History we want to go back in history: we enquire into the interrelated processes of nation-, state- and empire-formation as well as globalization and the role migrants and diasporas, Europeans, Africans, American Indians, merchants and trade companies, knowledge, germs and viruses, rumours and panics, technologies, goods and consumption played in these processes within and beyond the Atlantic World.
The 7th Summer Academy will be hosted by Prof Susanne Lachenicht, Universitaet Bayreuth.
