Publications

ENIUGH actively promotes research in world, global, comparative and transnational history by publishing scholarly articles, book reviews, announcements of conferences and workshops as well as shorter interventions in the debate on methods and theoretical approaches.

The main periodicals of the network are COMPARATIV. A Journal for Global History and Comparative Studies and Connections. A Journal for Historians and Area Specialists.

COMPARATIV (founded in 1991) serves as an intellectual platform for the formation of an interdisciplinary group of junior and senior scholars who explore world and global history. It focuses on past and present globalizations. Their manifold social, cultural, political and economic aspects are addressed from the perspectives of both change over time and variation over space (their different processes of territorialization and spatiality: regional, national, European and worldwide). Comparative perspectives are taken up, as are studies on cross-cultural entanglements, exchanges and transfer. Comparativ publishes articles in German, English and French.

The electronic complementary of Comparativ is Connections is a peer-reviewed e-journal in the field of area, transnational, transregional, world and global histories, edited on behalf of ENIUGH by Matthias Middell (Global and European Studies Institute and Centre for Area Studies at the University of Leipzig) and Katja Naumann (Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe). Connections is a part of the H-Soz-u-Kult, Clio-Online and H-Net network, which acts as an information and communication platform. Connections continues the work of geschichte.transnational, which has been published as a review forum since 2004. Today, Connections, with its 6000 subscribers broadens the perspective by also addressing global and transregional as well as transnational entanglements that increasingly characterize our present world. The journal encourages contributors to transcend a traditional understanding of space as a container within which societal processes occur and to instead investigate the dynamics resulting from such entanglements. Connections, however, does not solely concentrate on border-crossing flows but also looks at attempts to reorganize control over and regulation of such flows by all kinds of politics, among them prominently the politics of respacing. In this capacity, the journal organizes interdisciplinary cooperation between historians, social scientists and specialists in the various area studies as well as in the newly emerging field of transregional studies.
