Global History Cluster Research Programme 2022/2023

Welcome to the University of Glasgow Global History Cluster. Last academic year the city of Glasgow hosted the COP26 summit on climate change and our global history research cluster theme was global environmental history and climate change, this year we will continue with this and our new theme for 2022/2023 is Indigenous People in Global History.

Regular global history cluster meetings and discussion groups will take place on Thursdays at 13.00.
