About us

This international network seeks to advance the fields of global and diplomatic history by fostering a comparative, transregional, and connected understanding of the development and practice of inter-polity relations across the globe in the period between 1400 and 1900. Inspired by the recent proliferation of diplomatic history research across disciplines and national contexts, the network provides a platform for collaborative efforts to conduct source-based comparisons on a macro-scale and to challenge established master narratives. We believe that it is only through coordinated exchange between scholars representing different disciplinary, regional, and linguistic backgrounds and expertise that a fruitful dialogue can develop.

The network is open to researchers at any stage. If you are interested in pursuing global
comparisons, exploring trans-regional connections, and fostering collaborative discussions of the methodological frameworks of global diplomatic history, sign up here.
