- (The) Annales and History on a World Scale
The famous French journal, Les Annales. Histoire, Sciences sociales, has released an online thematic dossier entited « The Annales and History on a World Scale. » It is composed of important articles published in the journal in the field of global history. All articles can be freely accessed via online portals such as Cairn or Persée.
[Presentation Abstract]: « This selection of texts published in the Annales since 1946 situates the journal within the international historiographical debates of the last twenty years that have focused on global history, world history, connected history, comparative history, and regional histories (Imperial, Atlantic, etc.). Both hailed as a forerunner of some of the major trends in contemporary historiography—thanks to historians such as Fernand Braudel and Pierre Chaunu—as well as criticized for hindering French and even European progress in the field of history on a macroscopic level, the Annales has played a central role in ongoing methodological debates linked to global history. Nonetheless, the confusion between a “school of thought,” which is often difficult to define, and the journal, which still awaits its history, has revealed the necessity of looking back on historians’ practices of the past decades. » For more information and to access the selection of texts, follow this link.
