Abstract
This discussion paper questions the research field of Global Studies from a world-historical point of view. It points to the practical and ideological limits of the foundational concept of globalization (1), it proposes a historical frontier-perspective in order to understand global change (2), it adopts a critical stance towards Global Studies (3), and it introduces a research framework for a critical and inclusive Global Studies project (4). This paper draws heavily on my personal experiences as a (recently converted) world historian and on ongoing debates within the Ghent Center for Global Studies. It is therefore part of an argument under construction, solely reflecting my personal views.
