Globalization nowadays has much less of an ethusiastic pull than one or two decades ago. People who believe in a narrative of globalization that begins only recently may interpret this shift as a reaction to the fact that the costs involved have become more visible than was the case in the 1990s. On the contrary, historians may ask for historical analogies to former times of what has been called deglobalization since it is not the first time that enthusiasm about global connectedness has been replaced by a more sceptical perspective. The presentation discusses possibilities of such diachronic comparisons.
