This seminar is co-organised by Quentin Deluermoz et Didier Nativel and a result of the collaboration between the ICT (Identités, Cultures et Territoires), the CESSMA (Centre d’Etudes en Sciences Sociales sur le mondes africaines, américaines et asiatiques) and the GRIP. 

It is situated at a double crossroads. Firstly, the place of ‘Europe’ in global history is understood as the study of long-distance interconnections and includes a series of approaches (connected and comparative, transnational, colonial, imperial, trans-imperial…). It is also a history of non-European worlds whose own historicities in a long time span have been appreciated with greater finesse for the last forty years.
