Vom 24.05 bis 26.05.2018 veranstalteten Prof. Dr. Stefan Berger und Prof. Dr. Klaus Weinhauer am Institut für soziale Bewegungen den Young Scholar Workshop unter dem Titel „A Period of Global Revolutions“. Bis dato wurden die Revolutionen zwischen 1905 und Mitte der 1920er Jahre in der transnationalen historischen Forschung vernachlässigt. Der Workshop ermöglichte mit Hilfe eines vergleichenden, begriffsgeschichtlichen und transnationalen Ansatzes neue Perspektiven auf die revolutionären Umwälzungen innerhalb dieser Zeitspanne zu erhalten. Der Workshop fokussierte sich auf „relevante Weltregionen“ und löste sich somit von nationalen und regionalen Narrativen.

Revolutions have traditionally been integral parts of national historical master narratives. Consequently, most research on the ‘Period of Global Revolutions’ from mid-1900s to mid-1920s has focused on regional and local aspects of revolutions. However, the transnational dimension of revolutions during that time span was neglected.
To reconsider the transnational aspects of revolutions, an international conference was held at Bielefeld University and the Institute for Social Movements in Bochum, funded by the Institute for Social Movements, the German Research Foundation and the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1288.
