Writing the History of the Global

Maxine Berg

British Academy

John Darwin has assessed the contributions offered by archives of imperial history in analysing connections, interpretations, and control of empires over their conquered territories. Megan Vaughan has discussed the marginal place of Africa in current global history writing. Peer Vries has challenged the recent focus of global historians on connections, networks, exchanges and transfers. This history leaves out wars, violence, conflicts, and especially the state. Sufumi So and Billy Kee-Long So have sought more use of transnational biographies and narratives of individuals across time and place in Asia as well as Europe. Did some of these perceive themselves within wider world and global identities?

Keywords:   imperial archives, Africa, war, conflicts, state, transnational biographies, global identities
