Transnational History

Seminar on methodology of transnational history organised in cooperation with Geneva University (funded by the Partnership Fund)


The research on European contemporary history in a transnational perspective is one of the most dynamic research spheres in historiography in a global perspective which is, however, underdeveloped in Czech historiographical sphere. The Geneva University hosts some of the most renown specialists in the field of transnational history. This seminar will allow them to share their expertise with MA and PhD students and post-doc researchers at Charles University. They will focus on various conceptual and methodological tools of transnational historiography (network analysis, study of transfers, circulations etc.) which they apply in their fields of interest (namely international organizations such as UNESCO, ILO, LN etc.). The meetings will combine lectures with seminars during which texts proposed by Swiss lecturers will be discussed. Swiss historians will be available for consultations.


Partner Institutions: Université de Geneve

Filozofická fakulta UK

October 21 2015, Joelle Droux: Rethinking history after the "transnational turn"? Old challenges and new outcomes from an ongoing project.
