Article apart for Transnational history[edit]

Mentioning transnational history in the introduction is absolutely fair as global, world, and transnational history share a lot in common. Meanwhile, having studied transnational history and currently using this approach for my PhD, I believe that it could have its own article. Ideas of border crossing, entangled analysis, circulation of knowledge occur at a smaller level than global history and could therefore be explained in an article called 'Transnational history'. What do you think? --Jordan Girardin (talk) 12:10, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Definitions are pretty hard. As you say, a lot (probably most) of what calls itself "modern world history" could equally fit under transnational history. Transnational history covers both German/French interactions and French/Chinese interactions, but only the latter would likely be considered world history as well. I'm kind of amazed that we have no article for histoire croisée/entanglement. If you're going to put in the effort, I'd personally rather see a good article on that topic than another broad article like this one, but it's up to you. de:Histoire_croisée exists on German wikipedia.- TheMightyQuill (talk) 17:18, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. Entangled history was going to be my next target. Perhaps I should start with that, and if articles get developed enough we can finish this historiographical triangle with 'transnational history'. -- Jordan Girardin (talk) 13:00, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
You'd be doing a great service if you write that article! Good luck. - TheMightyQuill (talk) 00:51, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
I realise this is several years after the discussion above, but I would echo the concern: transnational history is not "world history", although they do have some points of similarity, and should have its own article. It's very possible to write a transnational history of a small area and, conventionally, the term "transnational" is usually applied to this sort of study (of Europe, for example). There also seems to be a growing consensus that Global and World history are different, although these could certainly be discussed in a single article. —Brigade Piron (talk) 08:58, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Jordan Girardin and Brigade Piron. There certainly should be a seperate article "transnational history." There are articles on transnational history on the Danish, German, and the Luxembourgish Wikipedias. (talk) 13:10, 2 March 2017 (CET)
