Sixth European Congress on
World and Global History
Minorities, Cultures of Integration,
and Patterns of Exclusion
Online, 14 June — 16 June 2021
Turku, 17 June — 20 June 2021
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 constellations 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. With the Sixth 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 is again a commitment to transcending the confines of national and Eurocentric historiographies.
The Sixth ENIUGH Congress was originally to take place in June 2020. By virtue of the global spread of Covid-19 at the beginning of 2020, the ENIUGH Steering and Organising Committees decided to postpone the congress for a year. Building on the experience of new formats in which scientific exchange has taken place since the outbreak of the pandemic, the congress will now take place during an extended period from 14 June to 20 June 2021. The first three days will offer online sessions and allow distant participation and the remaining days will take place in situ in Turku as originally planned, but now with online video streaming.
While we will maintain the original programme of 2020 as much as possible, we want to take advantage of this new situation and invite scholars to submit additional panels and/or individual papers. During the last months, many interesting debates and research questions have emerged in response to the current pandemic – often with a clear global perspective. At the same time, the main theme of the congress “Minorities, Cultures of Integration and Patterns of Exclusion” has also gained a new twist due to the challenges and responses to Covid-19.
