This volume includes essays by Bjørnstad, Professor Guillaume Ansart, and other scholars that focus on various aspects of universal history, the effort from the late Middle Ages until the early 19th century to integrate time and space, “assemble the world and keep it together” (cover description). The publication is a culmination of research collaborations begun in 2013 with a workshop at Indiana University Bloomington entitled “Assembling the Global” and continued with another symposium in Oslo (Norway) in June 2014. Ph.D. student Amanda Vredenburgh ably assisted with translation and proofreading.
