Historical Studies


About

Activities in this cluster explore historical questions across interdisciplinary contexts and also engage with history as a discipline. Working groups cross temporal, regional, cultural, and national boundaries, draw on comparative, transnational, and global perspectives and use thematic approaches to historical questions, and address various theoretical, methodological, and political debates in historical inquiry. Activities include, but are not limited to, collaborations in (and across): social history; labor studies and economic history; early modern studies; race, gender, sexuality, and disability studies; social movement history; political history/political thought; history of science and medicine; intellectual history; and histories of empire, colonialism, and settler colonialism.
