Writing the History of the Global

Jean-Frédéric Schaub

British Academy

The colonized Spanish American world has not yet played a part as a leading subject of global history. French historiography addresses a concept of ‘asymmetries’ on European writing on encounters and cultural transfers. European historians risk essentialist frameworks in their comparisons of societies. Analysis must address the longer and broader framework of conquered and colonized peoples.

Keywords:   Spanish American world, colonies, conquered peoples, encounters, cultural transfers, asymmetries, French historiography
