History without borders

Sanjay Subrahmanyam is the proponent of a new kind of “connected history” spanning regions, subjects and archives conventionally treated alone. Not a research paradigm, he insists, this is more of an oppositionswissenschaft, a way of trying to constantly break the moulds of historical objects. Connected History considers what, exactly, is an empire; the rise of “the West” (less of a place than an ideology); Churchill and the Great Man theory of history; the reception of world literature and the itinerary of subaltern studies; in addition to personal recollections of life and work in Delhi, Paris and Lisbon.

Reviews

“The most brilliant promoter of the new history. Heretical and highly stimulating.”

“Subrahmanyam reminds us of the need for different prisms.”
