Research programme

Global History network

LIAS Global History Workshop brings together faculty and graduate students in LIAS and other Institutes who are interested in writing critical histories grounded in empirical research and theory, irrespective of historiographical approach, geographical focus, or time period.

Kiri Paramore

It provides a forum to discuss written works-in-progress and readings of common interest. Both works-in-progress and selected readings must be pre-circulated (at least 3 days before meeting) so that members can read the materials ahead of time. The bulk of our time will be spent on discussion, not summarization or oral presentation.
