Welcome to the Global history lab!

The Global History Lab (GHL) was initiated in late 2015 as an experimental project within the history department at Åbo Akademi University. The aim is to bring together scholars from different areas and disciplines willing to explore and develop questions of global history. To date we have prominent members across several countries, each with their own unique scholarly background and perspective.

This portal will offer you resources on global history in general and present the work of our lab in particular. GHL regularly arranges study circles and seminars to discuss established questions as well as the latest news within the field. We are also forging long-term projects through workshops.

Feel free to contact us in order to become a member or a contributor to our lab and gain access to all our resources.
