The volume examines historical mechanisms of cultural and intellectual exchange both in European and global contexts. It questions existing intellectual and political hierarchies between centres and peripheries and focuses in particular on perspectives from alleged margins. Without claiming to fully re-write European and global history from the perspectives of the peripheries, it provides a historical corrective that rebalances common perceptions about asymmetrical encounters in history. It does so by developing and implementing a conceptual framework for remapping centres and peripheries, based on conceptual history and discourse history.

This book launch is supported by the School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS), the Centre for Transnational History (CTH) and the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS), UCL.
