Global History

One of the international research groups based at the Global and Transregional Studies Platform deals with Global History. Several fellows are part of the project “A Global Network for Global History”, which is headed by Prof. Ravi Ahuja and funded by the VW foundation, in cooperation with the International Institute of Social History (Amsterdam) and the Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (Harvard). Other fellows include a group of researchers from China and the United States who have been invited by Prof. Dominic Sachsenmaier and are funded through various sources. The group is extended by several affiliates.

In addition to pursuing their individual projects, all fellows interact closely with researchers on Göttingen Campus in a number of colloquia, reading groups and workshops.
