The Vienna Global History Group dedicates the academic year 2023/24 to the topic of “Intersecting Inequalities”. Discussions on social, economic and cultural inequality have become a major and pressing issue in society and the media as well as in social sciences and the humanities. Since the end of the Cold War, inequalities seem more and more globally connected and intertwined within and across societies in the Global North as well as in the Global South, in the West as much as in the East. A historical perspective on the intersecting factors for inequalities and their long-term transformation over time as well as their specific configurations across space seems thus particularly promising in order to situate current trends in time.
