Giving Global Times their History

22.03.2011
After the previous Congresses in Leipzig (2005) and Dresden (2008), the third European Congress on World and Global History will be held in London on April 14-17, 2011.

It is organized by the European Network in Universal and Global History (ENIUGH) with its headquarters at the University of Leipzig.

Under this year’s major theme „Connections and Comparisons“ around 500 renowned historians from all over Europe will be debating in nearly 100 sections the latest research conducted on the Origins and Perspectives, Opportunities and Problems of Globalisation processes. Globalisation – both a key term and a taboo word of our times - will be placed in its historical context. A necessary prerequisite in the search for solutions to current challenges.

If we are to remain capable of responding to the challenges of our times we must understand the long history of our globalised present. The new World and Global History established itself a few years ago in the international scientific landscape. This has led to a varied research field and to the progressive anchoring of global history perspectives in University teaching, among others in study programmes such as the EU-funded “Global Studies in a European Perspective”, carried out by an international consortium from the universities of Vienna, Wroc³aw, Roskilde and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and conducted by the University of Leipzig

The European Congress for World and Global History offers researchers from all over Europe a central forum to discuss these questions. The Congress is one of the most distinguished events in Europe in the field of historical research on globalisation and it can boast a worldwide drawing power.

The European Network in Universal and Global History (ENIUGH) organizes the congress. Its headquarters is located at the Global and European Studies Institute of the University of Leipzig. Prof. Dr. Matthias Middell is the head of steering committee of congress. The network draws also on research which is conducted at the Centre for Area Studies (CAS) and at the Center for the History and Culture of East Central Europe (GWCO) at the University of Leipzig on the role of world regions in the process of globalization. Both institutions support the congress also from its research funds.

The European Network is at the same time member of the Network of Global and World History Organizations (NOGWHISTO), which has become affiliated member of the Comité International des Sciences Historiques in 2010 and thus also engages in this framework internationally for the promotion of research and teaching of global, world and transnational history.

Date: April 14-17, 2011
Venue: London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE, England

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Erforschung von Elementarteilchen in Materialien

Laseranregung von Semimetallen ermöglicht die Erzeugung neuartiger Quasiteilchen in Festkörpersystemen sowie ultraschnelle Schaltung zwischen verschiedenen Zuständen.

Die Untersuchung der Eigenschaften fundamentaler Teilchen in Festkörpersystemen ist ein vielversprechender Ansatz für die Quantenfeldtheorie. Quasiteilchen...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Mit solaren Gebäudehüllen Architektur gestalten

Solarthermie ist in der breiten Öffentlichkeit derzeit durch dunkelblaue, rechteckige Kollektoren auf Hausdächern besetzt. Für ästhetisch hochwertige Architektur werden Technologien benötigt, die dem Architekten mehr Gestaltungsspielraum für Niedrigst- und Plusenergiegebäude geben. Im Projekt »ArKol« entwickeln Forscher des Fraunhofer ISE gemeinsam mit Partnern aktuell zwei Fassadenkollektoren für solare Wärmeerzeugung, die ein hohes Maß an Designflexibilität erlauben: einen Streifenkollektor für opake sowie eine solarthermische Jalousie für transparente Fassadenanteile. Der aktuelle Stand der beiden Entwicklungen wird auf der BAU 2017 vorgestellt.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
