The global impact of religions/ideologies
Migration and borders/diasporas
War and militarism/terrorism
Trade and commerce/globalization
“Clash of civilizations” vs. connections
Geography and climate/environment
Spread of cultures/popular culture
Thematic approaches to World History
We welcome proposals on any subject, period or area from independent scholars as well as teachers/scholars from universities, colleges, secondary schools, publishers and other related institutions.
Proposals may include individual papers, collaborative projects or roundtable discussions of a topic or theme connected to world history.
