About

The research programme at The Department of Global Studies provides a forum for cross-disciplinary research in different regions and aims to enhance our understanding of how negotiations of concepts and actions have functioned in transnational or global spaces from the 19th century to the present.

Modernity serves as a key term for the programme, and we intend to explore how a multiplicity of modernities have been and still are being negotiated in transnational spaces.

The inclusion of both non-European and European perspectives in the programme ensures a multiplicity of angles and nodes of observation.

While concepts and actions are constantly being negotiated and combined in ways that render the place of origin less obvious, there is value in critically tracing how they have been negotiated in different places over time.
