Current historians of the world, de-nationalhistoricize ourselves! Reading the writing the nation series in a globalized age

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article aims to analyze and evaluate the arguments presented in the Writing the Nation series (8 vols., ed. Stefan Berger, Christoph Conrad, and Guy Marchal [Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2008–2015]). The main question to answer here is: In a globalized world, do we historians still need to talk about national history, that is, the practice of writing the history of nations, or should we instead seek to produce historical works suitable for the globalized world, including global histories?
