This conference advocates for a new Comparative Global Humanities: the integrative transformation of the Humanities through a radical foregrounding of geographical scope and temporal depth. It embodies the belief that to create more equal societies in the present, we need to create more equality for other places and other pasts — and learn from all they have to offer. We aim to develop new comparative methodologies based on the world’s archives and conceptual vocabularies. This allows us to address the social, political, and creative functions of cultural heritage in today’s world and to advocate more effectively for social justice, and for cultural understanding and reconciliation.
