Transnationalising the Humanities

Transnationalising the Humanities

Posted 21 June, 2019

We live in an entangled world in which the local, regional, national and global are interconnected through intricate networks and loops of exchange. The history of transnational exchange and contact includes the history of empires, warfare, colonisation, slavery, the global exploitation of natural resources, and climate change. In the light of this intrinsic tension, the UCD Humanities Institute in partnership with the College of Arts & Humanities, is leading a research strand on Transnationalising the Humanities. This strand explores methodological issues alongside specific case studies of transnational and transcultural practices, both from historical and contemporary perspectives.
