Histories Connected

Histories Connected seeks to explore social, cultural, and political issues that connect people of Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, and Europe throughout different periods of time.

Márcia Gonçalves


This collaboration between LIAS and the Institute for History brings together scholars at Leiden University and other universities who are interested in writing histories grounded in empirical research and theory, irrespective of historiographical approach, geographical focus, or time period. It provides an informal forum to discuss written work-in-progress and other texts of common interest. In addition to monthly meetings, it also organises an annual lecture and masterclass, as well as book launches to introduce innovative, thought-provoking works of historical inquiry to a wider public.  


  • Regular meetings take place on the last Friday of each month, from January 2023 onwards. 
  • Annual public lecture and masterclass
  • Book Launches
