This article offers one view of the evolving historiography that shapes, or might shape, specialist research on regions and periods covered by the conference. It argues that recent trends have given fresh impetus to an old subject, empires, and presented possibilities for studying a new one, globalization. It explores the reasons for the “material turn” and the “totalizing return” in historical studies, and illustrates the stages through which these developments have passed by citing examples from the author’s own varied fortunes in exploring both subjects. The article concludes by suggesting how some of the main themes discussed at the conference might be connected to the new historiography.

Cette contribution propose une vue d’ensemble sur l’historiographie qui s’est développée ces dernières années. Il se peut qu’elle influence la recherche spécialisée relative aux régions et aux périodes qui ont passées la revue pendant la conférence. L’étude en suggère que des tendances récentes ont données un nouvel élan à un vieux sujet de recherche—celui des empires—en soulevant des interrogations sur un nouveau sujet, la globalisation. Cette contribution explore la ‘tournure matérielle’ et le retour ‘au panorama’ qu’ont pris la recherche historique, fondés sur des exemples tirés des publications de l‘auteur. Ces exemples exemplifient les étapes qu’a subies l’historiographie et en signalent les fortunes variées. Pour conclure l’auteur suggère comment les thèmes proéminents de la conférence peuvent être liés à l’historiographie moderne.
