World History Workshop
World History Workshop is an academic forum for the exchange of ideas among students and scholars of the humanities and social sciences with an interest in world history.
The Workshop arranges regular sessions based on presentations of papers or work-in-progress followed by discussions. The Workshop promotes research in global, comparative and transnational history.
The Workshop serves as a forum for discussing different approaches to world history, as an opportunity for scholarly exchange, and offers an inspiring intellectual environment. It seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the historicity of our own globalized world.
The Workshop is open to graduate and postgraduate students, professors and the wider scholarly community.
World History is a growing field and encompasses a wide variety of historical topics, all sharing an aim to do history beyond the nation, including the following: Methods and approaches to world history; comparative analysis of global processes; migration; cross-regional connections and networks; global commodities; history of trade; globalisation; historiography of world history; global conjunctures and moments; cultural encounters; world orders; imperial history; social and political movements; international organizations; political polities; climate and environmental history, etc.
