Tendencias colectivas e individuos en la historiografa


MESA D. TENDENCIAS COLECTIVAS Y "GRANDES HISTORIADORES" EN LA HISTORIOGRAFA

Kerstin Sundberg (Lunds University, Suecia)

Great historians and collective tendencies in historiography-some aspects of colonialism-liberation processes neo-colonialism neo-liberation processes

To the conference I will connect this preliminary prospect of my coming research with discussions of Colonialism-neo-colonialism and world-economic systems as they have continuously been discussed by great historians e.g. Andre Gunde Frank, Imanuel Wallerstein and Fernand Braudel. My aim is to problematise the concept of centre-peripheral relationships where the centre always dominates and rules, by discussing mutual exchange and ideas of the melting pot culture in e.g. Louisiana and especially in New Orleans.
