The Americas as Space of Entanglement(s) (CIAS, Bielefeld)
The CIAS Project Group has made its goal to research the continued growth of entangling phenomena within the society, culture, politics, law, environment and economy of the Americas. The focus is on the current acceleration of the processes of transnational communalisation, development, regulation and communication. This focus is supplemented with a diachronic consideration of mid- and long-term integration and disjunction dynamics. In this context, the question that guides the research becomes: to what extent did bolstered inter- and trans-regional forces on the two American continents gain momentum in the 19th century next to the transatlantic relations, which constituted the Americas as Space of Entanglement(s) that then becomes a central geopolitical frame of reference for political, societal, cultural and economic action in the region?
