SAECULUM. Jahrbuch für Universalgeschichte

The world historical yearbook SAECULUM is devoted to the cultures of all regions and their historical development and diversity. This broad outlook comprises contemporary history as well as prehistory and protohistory. Not least, the global influences of European history are among the yearbook's subjects. Its world historical design is reflected in the analysis of relations between social and economic history and between political and cultural history, including transregional connections between these fields. Wherever possible, SAECULUM aims at a comparative perspective. It offers a forum for fundamental debates in history and cultural studies. SAECULUM is aimed at scholars in history and cultural studies that seek to transcend specialisation through methodical and theoretical thinking.

SAECULUM is a peer-reviewed journal published by Böhlau Verlag.
