This work aims to present global history as a subfield of history. It constituted itself in the three last decades incorporating the great issues of the final years of the twentieth century, and seeking to understand also the significance of the events of the 2000s. Therefore, the object of analysis is the global historiography produced between 1990 and 2010. The first chapter will seek to analyze a set of works of this trend in order to present his outlines: tasks, sources, methods, periodization and the strategies of narrative construction that capture and explain globalization; thus exposing thematic preferences of the authors. The second chapter asks about historiographical antecedents that led to the formation of this trend, and traces the history of the tension between cosmopolitanism and parochialism in several historiographical traditions, underlining the first’s suppression since the nineteenth century and its return in the second half of the twentieth century in the current of world history, from where global history emerges. The third chapter addresses the modernity/postmodernity debate documenting how it was present in the formation of global studies in the 1980s and of global history itself in the 1990s. By exposing the debate and analyzing its constitutive role in the trend of global history, it will be possible to show how the latter overcame the dichotomies of the first, incorporating: the critique of eurocentrism and of the nation-state – from postmodern thought; and fundamentally the metanarrative as the mode of writing the history of humanity – from modern thought. Thus this subfield of history recovers and actualizes a modern element through postmodern experience, the result of which is a global metanarrative, more prepared to face the dangers of Eurocentric and nation-state discourse, and more adequate to provide historical meaning in a globalized world.
