Collaborative Research Group African History

The aim of the Collaborative Research Group African History is to organise Africanist historians in Europe, to enhance the visibility of African history within the larger field of African Studies and that of history in Europe, and to promote the development of African history as a discipline within the larger domain of humanities and social sciences. It is an explicit aim to enhance the profile of African History within AEGIS. In order to reach any of these goals, the membership/participation in CRG-AH is open to both institutional and individual membership/participation of Africanist historians working within or outside AEGIS member institutes.

Transatlantic Cultures: an international research project
The project Transatlantic Cultures offers to implement a connected cultural history of the transatlantic space thanks to new digital tools and media.  It aims at the creation of a Dictionary of Transatlantic Cultural History (18th-21st centuries) edited  online in four languages (French, English, Spanish, Portuguese).  It is imagined as a digital platform that analyses the dynamics of the Atlantic space in order to understand its role in the process of contemporary cultural globalisation.

Transatlantic Cultures : un projet de recherche international
Le projet Transatlantic Cultures propose de mettre en oeuvre une histoire culturelle connectée de l’espace atlantique grâce aux nouveaux outils et supports numériques.  Il vise à la réalisation d’un Dictionnaire d’histoire culturelle transatlantique (XVIIIe-XXIe siècles) édité en ligne et en quatre langues (français, anglais, espagnol, portugais) : une plateforme numérique pour analyser les dynamiques de l’espace atlantique et comprendre son rôle dans le processus de mondialisation culturelle contemporain.
