Research Clusters

Center for World History

    The World History Research Cluster aims to revive and re-envision an inactive research center.  We will focus on new research in, and theoretical discussions of, world and transnational history.  Of particular interest is discussing sub-themes, approaches, or world regions that best serve the research interests of our scholarly community, including but not limited to: global environmental history; oceanic regions, such as the Atlantic World; comparative gender history; and global indigenous histories.

    Towards this end the Cluster will sponsor a speaker series, a reading group, and a conference.
