Series - Critical, Connected Histories
The series Critical, Connected Histories seeks to explore unfamiliar social, cultural, and political issues that connect people of Asia, the Middle-East, Africa, America and Europe in the modern age. Current trends in historiography explore transnational flows and networks, with their themes of circulation and connection receiving a welcome appeal.
This series challenges legal and imagined boundaries while examining the durability of their structures of power. In addition, the series cautions against the potential universalisation of histories, and situates queries within different vantage points.
Multi-disciplinary in their approach, the books in this series draw from sources in multiple languages and media. They seek to expand our understanding and historical knowledge of events, processes, and movements. In denaturalising the practices of historical writing, this series offers a forum for scholarship that is both theorised and empirically rich, and one that in particular addresses the violence and inequality of the modern ages as well as its promises.
