Leibniz Prize Research Group ‘Global Processes, 18th to 20th Centuries’
(2010 to 2018)

The Research Group ‘Global Processes’ was funded from the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize awarded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) to Jürgen Osterhammel in 2010. It was active from 2010 to 2018. The project brought together senior scholars, postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students working on different aspects of global history and world history in various periods from the eighteenth century onwards. The group was united by the common aim of conceptualising and explaining change over time in a variety of global, transnational and non-European settings. It did not aim to elaborate an explicit theory, but used the heuristic device 'global processes’ to enhancing historians’ susceptibility to making and breaking connections. Its individual research projects shared an interest in studying change on a global scale, retrieving its distinct modes and temporal structures, its directions and limits.

The following bibliography is a complete list of all the publications that have benefited, materially, and sometimes more indirectly, from their authors’ membership of, or affiliation with, the Leibniz Prize Research Group.
