The Royal Historical Society 2018 Symposium

The Future of History: Going Global in the University

University of Oxford, 22-23 June 2018

Oxford's Centre for Global History is pleased to be hosting the 2018 Royal Historical Society Symposium on 'The Future of History: Going Global in the University', held at the Ashmolean Museum and the Bodleian Weston Library.  In the 150th anniversary year of The Royal Historical Society, this symposium focuses on the nature of the ‘global turn’ in higher education, which has challenged the traditional framework of history research and teaching in universities.  Whether in reframing periodization, or in encouraging large collaborative research projects, this event brings together a range of scholars to discuss the practice of history in higher education now that history departments have been urged to go global.  Speakers will reflect on the methodological, chronological, and geographical frameworks used in the teaching and research of history at universities, and examine both the challenges and opportunities that global approaches offer to history in institutions of higher education.
