Research clusters

The Department of History plays host to nine research clusters, which bring together our academic staff in collaborative partnerships focused on important periods, regions and fields of historical study. The body of globally-recognized research produced by the clusters pays testimony to the department's vibrant research environment and culture of continuing intellectual exchange.
