New Book by Susan Richter

Oct 02, 2017

The volume is called "Konstruktionen Europas in der frühen Neuzeit" and was edited by Cluster member Prof. Susan Richter, former Cluster member Sebastian Meurer and Michael Roth. It was recently published on the homepage of Heidelberg University Publishing, where it is available for download.

The volume “Konstruktionen Europas in der frühen Neuzeit – Geographische und historische Imaginationen” features articles both in English and German and reflects the results of the conference “Rethinking Early Modern Europe in a Global Perspective”. The event was organized by the Chair for the Early Modern Period of the Department of History in September 2015 and supported by the Cluster "Asia and Europe".

Global history has long become an established field of research. At the 11th conference of the working group on the Early Modern Period in 2015, participants aimed at applying global-history approaches not only on distant world regions, but especially on early modern Europe. “Europe” has consistently been both a subject to and a concept of negotiation processes, which hardly kept to territorial borders or clear-cut topographically or language-bounded areas. The conference proceedings opened up new views on geographical and historical imaginations of Europe from within and without, on claims of identity and alterity as well as on the mutability of periphery-centre relations. Moreover, they displayed the wide range of – internationally well-connected – historical research on the early modern period in Germany.
