Since its creation in 1945, UNESCO has played a continued role in advancing methodological and epistemological discussions in the field of historical studies, from its post-Second World War initiation of the ‘History of Humanity’ project and the first Journal of World History, to its current engagement with the trans-Atlantic histories of slavery and migration. This conference brings together scholars who address new questions of historical methodology in the context of the study of international organisations, with a special, although not exclusive, reference to UNESCO. The aim of the conference is to encourage innovative work that brings the study of UNESCO and other international organizations into the mainstream of international and national histories and interdisciplinary approaches.
