In the study of the production and reproduction of dependency, the key methodological issue emerges regarding the ways “the local” and “the global” are understood, combined and constructed. The third workshop in the “Dependency Workshop Series” addresses several related questions, among others: How can the standard local/global divide be overcome? Is “scale” an appropriate analytical tool to this end? How can we concretely ground large historical processes (including dependency) in specific places and connections? How do flows of individuals, objects, ideas and practices impact on the production of large historical processes? Underlying these questions, the epistemological issue emerges of the circumstances under which global history and microhistory can be combined.
