Pat Manning published Navigating World History in 2003. This book was, in my limited understanding, the last systemic attempt at assessing the field. It is now almost 12 years ago since the book came out. I am curious about what the H-World community thinks about the state of the field of world history.
Welcome to H-World, a network for practitioners of world history. The list gives emphasis to research, to teaching, and to the connections between research and teaching.

Interesting to see a post on the History of Medicine on H-World. But I would point out that the "publication by press release" study on the alleged MRSA treatment (MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphococcus aureus, one of the nastier "killer bugs" that has developed antibiotic resistance) has nothing to do with the essay I wrote on bringing analyses from genetics into historical work.
