The Fourth International Berlin Global History Student Conference
June 9th-10th 2018, Berlin
In recent years, global history has become one of the most ambitious and promising strands of historical research. The approach targets relations, flows, and actors that challenge the assumption of the nation state as a natural and inevitable category of historical analysis. It calls attention to the importance of transnational, trans-regional, or trans-local connections and their influence on the past.

From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the Western world was marked by intense activism and rapid cultural change. Whether due to the student “New Left” or second wave feminism, old certainties came under attack. Yet, there remains an aspect of this general atmosphere that is still poorly understood: the collective demands of national minorities.
