The TGH Blog is a forum for presenting and debating new research in the field of global history, and in particular on the history of ideas, knowledge and culture in global and transnational contexts.
The Blog contributes to the Turin Humanities Programme’s mission of promoting the study of global history at the cutting edge of international research, while bringing its importance to the understanding of present times to the fore.
To complement the THP research activities and publications, the Blog offers a public space for presenting and discussing new contributions and approaches to global and intellectual history. It does so in a dynamic and accessible format that aims to promote debate beyond academia.
The Blog wishes to contribute to the revival of Turin’s renowned tradition of historical studies in the 20th century, drawing on the methodological legacy of Franco Venturi studies on the Enlightenment and intellectual history in a transnational, and cosmopolitan context.
