Inhalt Recent developments and crises challenge long-held ideas in the social sciences about the spatial nature of societies and the temporal nature of social change. In ways that are arguably unique in global history, the coronavirus pandemic has created a shared focus of attention across nation-states, hinting at the existence of a transnational society and globally interconnected interpretations of crisis. The killing of George Floyd and the subsequent socio-political movements against racism and police brutality, moreover, have highlighted the importance of critical events and the potentially accelerated nature of social change.

In this seminar, we discuss contemporary interdisciplinary approaches and theories that seek to capture this configuration of spatial interconnectedness and temporal acceleration. The focus on the temporal categories of crises, events, and developments through a transnational perspective seeks to enable students to critically assess and understand both contemporary and past social and political dynamics, including the French Revolution, the interdependence of Civil Rights struggles in the United States and decolonization processes in Africa, Feminist movements and intersectional perspectives, as well as the recent measures against the spread of Covid-19 taken by countries across the world.
Lernziele ● Students are capable of critically interpreting crises, events, and developments from a transnational perspective. They are aware of what the respective concepts imply and can critically assess advantages and disadvantages of using different analytical frameworks.
● Students are familiar with the empirical cases discussed during the seminar. They can situate them in broader historical contexts and are capable of relating historical developments across world regions.
