Re: NERWHA Symposium -- a tribute to Pat Manning

I enjoyed the NERWHA conference immensely and appreciate the effort the organizers exerted to make this an intellectually stimulating day. The various panels brought up a wide range of issues in the field of world history that I think are worth discussing on this list, including the question as to whether the “global turn” in historiography across the entire discipline of history has made the field of world history redundant. (I don’t think so, but I think it is worth discussing).
