The new biannual and peer-reviewed journal Global Humanities. Studies in Histories, Cultures, and Societies was initiated to discuss topics of a global and transnational range from an interdisciplinary perspective. It should provide a forum for likewise young and experienced scholars to present their recent research. The aim of the journal is to discuss historical, cultural, social, and economic topics from a wider and more global perspective and thus to underline the deeper meanings and reasons for global processes, which have become increasingly dominating in our world. Especially the non-European world needs to be of higher interest for the debates, which often used to be Euro- or recently US-centered. Due to this the journal will mainly focus on aspects of research, which are related to Africa, Asia, as well as Latin and South America. Our aim is to particularly integrate these hitherto understudied fields and geographical regions and provide an international audience for new aspects of research. Therefore, we encourage scholars from all possible fields in the humanities to participate in the project.

Global Humanities is edited by the historian Frank Jacob.
