In his lecture entitled “Transnational History: Concept, Current Status of Research, Future Challenges”, Eckhardt Fuchs will place emphasis on the development of research in the history of education on the basis of transnational approaches. Transnational history has arrived at the field of history of education. This reflects a paradigmatic shift that historical scholarship that opens new perspectives for research beyond the traditional historical narratives mainly based on the nation state. Professor Fuchs will also discuss the concepts “transnational/international” by looking at their history in different intellectual contexts, their theoretical foundations, and their usage by historians of education. This includes a reflection about the various methods applied to transnational research, and the challenges the “transnational” concept poses on the field of history of education.
