Kommentar

Since the colonial period Latin America has been shaped by its connections to the Pacific world. The movement of peoples, goods, and ideas along the region's western coasts, across the Pacific, and between the Pacific and the Atlantic worlds deeply influenced the region’s societies and cultures. In this seminar Latin America’s Pacific connections serve as a point of departure for an inquiry into the problem of scale in social scientific and historical research. During a time in which global perspectives are on the rise, we will question the uses and challenges of this approach. Through a combination of theoretical reflections and historical examples we will explore how to study connectivity without losing sight of those factors that prompted or interfered with mobilities in specific localities. Students will familiarize themselves with debates over global and micro history, as well as with the scholarship that explores how the global paradigm can be deployed to answer more traditional questions about the relationship between society and self. The ultimate aim of these engagements with both the recent critical literature on global history writing and concrete source materials is to provide students with insights into the ways in which trans- and multi-scalar perspectives can help to enrich their own research.
