The collaborative research project Global Europeanness (GlE) intends to critically interrogate the most recent developments in the international historical writing that have emerged as a consequence of the global transformations since the end of the Cold War and reassess the specificity of early modern and modern perceptions of globality. Global history, together with world history, has emerged as one of the most attractive historical concepts as it is based on a model of analysis that focuses on the interconnections at a variable distance and between actors with varying degrees of political and economic power and cultural self-sufficiency. ‘Global’ as a feature of historical studies on modernity has been criticized for its teleological drive. GlE aims to revise the notion of globality and qualify its significance for European history. GlE pursues the examination of different globalities from around 1450 to around 1900 from a transdisciplinary perspective and connects them to the role they played in creating forms of European identity. It examines the ways in which cultural forms circulated in the early modern and modern periods to describe and explain the varieties of asymmetrical interactions in international relations that resulted from increasing globality.
