About the Department of History and Civilization

The Department of History and Civilization focuses on global, comparative, and transnational approaches to the history of Europe in the World since 1400.

We encourage critical reflection on the research, writing, teaching and dissemination of history across national borders, and encourage our researchers to relate and apply historical research to contemporary challenges.
