Weatherhead Initiative on Global History Seminar

This seminar is open to the public.

This graduate-faculty research seminar is designed to bring together interested faculty and students on a continuing basis to cover topics on global history and the global history of capitalism. It is part of History 2950A, Approaches to Global History, and includes both reading sessions designed for graduate students and research sessions open to the interested public during which students and faculty participants will present current research. Faculty participants will be drawn from a number of schools, and, most especially, from the group of fellows in global history who are spending the academic year 2019–2020 at the Weatherhead Research Cluster on Global Transformations (WIGH).

Seminar papers are precirculated one week ahead of time and are available by request to
