Who We Are


As a research activity, the Center for World History supports research lectures in world history. 

In conjunction with the all-UC Multi-Campus Research group, "The World History Workshop," the Center for World History also supports the regular conferences of the MRG.

As a pedagogical activity, the Center for World History supports the teaching of world history at UCSC at all instructional levels (lower division, upper division and graduate) through periodic World History Teaching Forums.


As a part of an on-going collective effort at imagining the development of world history as a research field, the Center supports the activities of the UCSC History Graduate Research Cluster on "Global and Trans-National Histories." The research activities of the Center are open to interested UCSC faculty and advanced graduate students, especially historians.
