Enlightenment and Global History (ENGLOBE)

A Training Programme for Doctoral Students

With the newly emerging supra-disciplinary field of Global History and the conceptual tools of the Enlightenment, ENGLOBE provides a research platform that critically assesses Europe’s role in the process of globalization. We focus our critical research on four key concepts: Knowledge, Perception, Values, and Evolution.  By challenging eurocentric conceptualizations of world history and following the assumption that Europe will no longer dominate the globalization process in the future, ENGLOBE encourages critical thought that can be applied to global conflicts through reflected intercultural communication.
