Chapter Summary

This volume is an exercise in taking such a perspective from regions in Asia, Africa and the Middle East which have a long history of connections both within each of these regions as well as between them. This requires firstly a particular methodological sensorium for detecting connections beyond the 'local', which has been privileged in studies of the non-European world. Secondly, what is also needed is an intermediary concept which helps to better understand and conceptualise connections beyond the local which are, however, neither necessarily global in scale nor necessarily connected to global moments. This volume is organised in four sections, each of them combining a variety of different regional and historical contexts under one particular theme. Each of them implicitly addresses one particular aspect of the 'globalisation' paradigm and off ers alternative perspectives which can be subsumed under 'translocality' as we understand it.

Keywords: 'translocality'; Africa; Asia; globalisation'; Middle East
