Comparativ. Zeitschrift für Globalgeschichte und Vergleichende Gesellschaftsforschung

Since 1991, Comparativ has been devoted to innovative approaches in transnational, transregional, and global history that not only focus on the global condition emerging since the nineteenth century but also analyse former processes of transregional interaction. The journal is unifying and comprehensive in its approach, exhibiting the determined efforts by various disciplines to historically investigate processes of globalization. Differences and similarities between differently interpreted units of analysis as well as entanglements, connections, and intercultural transfers are addressed in both the most recent past as well as a longue duréeperspective. The journal places emphasis on the significance and function of these aspects regarding processes of respatialization by which social, cultural, political, economic, and legal orders are increasingly shaped. As the official journal of the European Network in Universal and Global History (ENIUGH), founded in 2002, Comparativ facilitates dialogue between European historians and area studies specialists and their colleagues from other parts of the world in order to overcome the lasting effects of the Eurocentric legacy in conceptualizing and writing world history.
