From Long-Distance Trade to the Global Lives of Things: Writing the History of Early Modern Trade and Material Culture

From Long-Distance Trade to the Global Lives of Things: Writing the History of Early Modern Trade and Material Culture

by Prof Anne Gerritsen

Until quite recently, the field of early modern history largely focused on Europe. The overarching narrative of the early modern world began with the European “discoveries,” proceeded to European expansion overseas, and ended with an exploration of the factors that led to the “triumph of Europe.” When the Journal of Early Modern History was established in 1997, the centrality of Europe in the emergence of early modern forms of capitalism continued to be a widely held assumption. Much has changed in the last twenty years, including the recognition of the significance of consumption in different parts of the early modern world, the spatial turn, the emergence of global history, and the shift from the study of trade to the commodities themselves.
