“Research Agenda Symposium.
World History: Interactions and Globalizations”
This international conference, including thirty-seven presenters from fourteen countries and an additional fifteen invited observers, will debate and develop a common statement on major priorities in world-historical research. The conference will be held in Boston, November 10-12, 2004, at the John Hancock Conference Center.
The conference website (www.worldhistorynetwork.org) displays the program plus biographies and 1000-word statements from the presenters. These statements are to be discussed in six sessions: tasks for world historians, social science analysis, cultural analysis, region and place in world history, human movement, and networks and organization of research.
The Research Agenda Symposium is co-sponsored by the World History Network, Inc., and the World History Association, with funding from the office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.
