We focus on transnational, comparative and connective analysis of relations between the American continent and the rest of the world.

Our research aims to promote the study and understanding of the history of the Western Hemisphere. We want to highlight the links between the Americas and the rest of the world by exploring the themes of:

  • International political affairs
  • Transnational movements and ideas
  • Colonialism
  • War and imperialism
  • Slavery and emancipation
  • Race, class and gender
  • Climate change


We have notable academics in this field who publish for academic and mainstream audiences.
