For the past years, 'globality' has emerged as a prominent interpretive example and intersects with the growing academic globalization. Both European historiography and national historiographies are increasingly shaped by research mobility and internationalization. At the same time, research patterns seem to be predominantly related to the Anglo-Saxon academic field and the "decolonization" of research production as studies of the non-European / "western" world are increasingly included in international literature. The purpose of this scientific meeting is to discuss concepts such as 'locality', 'transnationality / interculturalism' and 'globality / globalization' in relation to the transformations and the new questions that are currently being formulated in European historiography both through specific study examples and through historiographical assessments.
