Historians have generally tended to concentrate either on the history of the European powers and the Concert of Europe or on the colonial history of the non-European world when studying international and imperial relations in the age of empire. They have shown less interest in the bloc of independent non-European states that were in a liminal position, between the European states and their colonies. The engagement of non-European powers with European imperialism will be presented within a global panorama of struggles for sovereignty.
At the other endline, twentieth-century moments of imperial dissolution will be discussed to explore questions of political imagination and reconfiguration. The focus will be put on three efforts to create large-scale, transcontinental projects that could unite peoples of different origins in productive, attractive, and strong political units: Eurasia, Eurafrica, and Afroasia.

Giorgio Riello (European University Institute, Florence) Asian capitalism and global material cultures
If narratives of capitalist transformation aspire to be global, early modern Asia offers at least three important topics for debate: 1) a new emphasis on environmental variables in histories of capitalism, rather than just on land as a factor of production; 2) a focus on human capital, skills and work rather than simply the labour of unskilled and coerced populations; and 3) a broader reconceptualization of capital, a factor that surprisingly has not been fully addressed by recent histories of capitalism.
Within this broader context, material culture requires important methodological and theoretical tools in order to be understood in a global perspective.
