Sixth European Congress on
World and Global History

Minorities, Cultures of Integration,
and Patterns of Exclusion

Turku, 25 June — 28 June 2020

Welcome to the Sixth ENIUGH Congress

Under the theme “Minorities, Cultures of Integration and Patterns of Exclusion”, we seek to stimulate and discuss research on minorities and the processes of past and present minoritization as well as the resistance they engender from a global perspective. We aim to analyse the various concepts of minority and minority positions as well as practices and narratives of inclusion, belonging, and exclusion with a focus on transnational and transregional con-stellations as well as comparative perspectives.

Addressing the exposure to and challenge of historical and contemporary mechanisms and policies of marginalization and exclusion in their relation to past and present cultures of integration we hope to stimulate a reflection on the normative underpinnings of societies.Our aim is to bring together as many perspectives and case studies as possible so that a stimulating debate about interpretations across historical periods, about comparisons of spaces may emerge, leading towards greater sensibility for border-crossing entanglements and encounters.

With the 6th ENIUGH Congress, we will also continue to explore the relations, transfers, and entanglements between states, peoples, communities, and individuals situated in, or spanning, different regions of the world in a comparative and a longue durée perspective. The common emphasis of the 2020 congress is again a commitment to transcending the confines of national and Eurocentric historiographies.
