An international conference on “Beyond modernity. Transepochal perspectives on spaces, actors, and structures” will take place in Basel on 28-29 November 2014, organised by the Basel Graduate School of History (BGSH) and the Institute for European Global Studies. By looking at the interplay between longue-durée approaches and postcolonial theory, this conference raises the question of whether “transepochal” perspectives can be rediscovered without adopting the normative assumptions that deeply affected the tale of modernity. The conference is organised within the context of the Annual Meeting of the BGSH.
GRAINES members are warmly welcomed to participate.
