Abstract:

Rethinking the ways global history is envisioned and conceptualized in diverse countries, this collection considers how global issues are connected with our local and national communities. It examines how the discipline had evolved in various historiographies, from Anglo Saxon to European, and its emergence in East Asia. It contributes to the revitalization of the field of global history in Chinese and Japanese historiographies, which has been dominated by national narratives. This text opens a new forum of discussion on how global history has penetrated in western and eastern historiographies, moving the pivotal axis of analysis from national perspectives to global history.
