Since 2017 three unusual yet similar historiographical works have been published in close succession. Similar in ambition, object and structure, these works are: Histoire mondial de la France, Storia mondiale dell’Italia and Historia mundial de España. All three share a sense of urgency as to the need to update historiographical tools and practices, in particular by critically reviewing the predominance of the national analytical framework in favour of a plurality of focal points capable of visualizing different spatialities, encompassing local, national and global. This article tests the limits and the potential of these approaches.
