The World History seminar is one of the oldest regular research seminars in the Cambridge history array, having its origins in the `Commonwealth and Overseas History Seminar'. The seminar was retitled `World History' in 2006 in recognition of changing intellectual interests and political contexts.
Our scope if very broad: in recent years we have featured contributions from around the globe with a particular focus on Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Post-graduates and World History faculty constitute the largest portion of our cohort, in particular students pursuing the MPhil in World History.
A student-led workshop often runs before the Thursday seminar. Drinks after, and the occasional meal out, means that the seminar is a congenial and lively place to meet up and exchange a range of ideas and information. We hope to return to the pre-Covid format as soon as possible. A list of recent seminar-givers can be found on this website.
