Over the past decades, the annual summer school of Leipzig’s Graduate School Global and Area Studies has established itself as a productive meeting place for interdisciplinary discussion on transnational, transregional, transcultural, and global encounters and entanglements as well as a space to reflect on new trends in globalization research both in a historical and in a contemporary perspective. The 2024 meeting, which is organised in close cooperation with the Centre for Interdisciplinary Regional Studies (ZIRS) at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Research Centre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe), addresses questions of multiple crises and the role of social sciences and humanities.

We welcome papers that focus on various (perceived) crises and their intersections such as involuntary migration, the erosion of social cohesion, political revolutions, health, economic crises, geopolitical crises such as inter- and intra-state conflicts, and environmental crises such as the loss of biodiversity, the supply of energy sources, and climate change. Importantly, we invite authors to reflect on the interlinkages between the individual crises as well as different perceptions and interpretations of these crises in different communities at regional, national, transnational and global levels. We are particularly interested in experiences and perceptions of multiple crises and global dynamics, both from a contemporary and historical perspective.
