The Global North: Spaces, Connections, and Networks before 1700, Stokckholm University 12-14 August 2019

This conference invites scholars of many disciplines to explore the spaces, connections, and  networks of the Global North within a longer time frame and to offer new perspectives that cross the frontiers of traditional national historiographies or insular regional studies. We welcome relevant contributions by scholars of late antiquity/Viking period, the Middle Ages, and the Early Modern period whose work sheds light on the central themes of the conference. Indeed, this will be the first in a recurrent series dedicated to the Global North, with future conferences concentrating on other periods and other themes. Select papers drawn from the conference proceedings will be revised for publication.
