World history looks at events and processes whose magnitude reaches far beyond local, national or even continental histories.

Concept Africa

Such broader accounts are typically centred on European or Western ideas of how history is to be written, both in terms of the spatial origo of the events and processes viewed, and with regard to the concepts used for their explanation. Against this backdrop, more and more voices can be heard pleading a non-Western-centred approach to global history. Scholars working within many different approaches have uttered their concern. Post-colonial theories have long drawn attention to the inadequacy underlying much Western writing on the exotic Other—from Edward Said’s Orientalism (1978) to Dipesh Chakrabarty's proposal of Provincialising Europe (2001). Africa’s position with regard to these considerations is strangely ambivalent. Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

European Regions and Boundaries: A Conceptual History. The "spatial turn" in social and human sciences and the upsurge of transnational approaches to history of late have converged to produce a renewed interest in regional history and its premises.

European Regions and Boundaries: A Conceptual History

The collapse of the two-block system underpinned these intellectual developments: categories previously grounded in the geopolitical system are now being replaced by those derived from historical-structural characteristics of space. From this perspective, European history becomes conceivable only in relation to the variety of discrete historical spaces, as defined by specific longue durée features and relative historical uniformity, whose distinctiveness and lost unity it is now the task of history to recreate. It is against this theoretical background that we would like to address the notion of historical region from a conceptual-historical point of view. 2. The envisaged collective volume on European historical regions will be structured around two parts: Part A, Individual regions:

Forschungszentrum für historische Geisteswissenschaften. Grundlage historisch-semantischer Forschung ist die Annahme, dass Bedeutung situativ bedingt und instabil ist, gleichwohl in ihrer Fluktuation immer wieder und über längere Zeit eingeschränkt oder stillgestellt werden kann.

Als eine an Sprache orientierte Wissenschaft hat sich die Historische Semantik in der Geschichtswissenschaft seit den 1960er Jahren etabliert. In den letzten beiden Dekaden begann eine Neuausrichtung. Historische Semantik wird nun als eine Wissenschaft entworfen, die vergleichend die Bedingungen, Medien und Operationen der Sinnerzeugung in vergangenen Gesellschaften erforscht. In dieser Neuausrichtung fragt Historische Semantik nach den anthropologischen, psychologischen, soziologischen wie technischen Voraussetzungen der Bedeutungsgeflechte, mit denen Kulturen ihr Wissen und ihre Orientierungen ausdrückten und organisierten.
