With expertise in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe, the interests of the Global History and Culture Centre’s members span the globe, and it is the connections between these different regions that are the main focus of the Centre’s activities.
Established in 2007, the Centre forms an important part of the Department of Historyand the wider University. The Centre is at the fore of the development of global history as an integral part of the field of history.
Research Focus: The Centre hosts a number of research projects and fellowships supported by a variety of funding bodies. We engage in teaching, graduate research, academic publications, host visiting academic fellows, participate in research networks, and organise symposia, conferences, and seminar series, such as the recent conference on ‘The Space Between‘ micro- and global history.
