Global and Transnational History Group (GTHG)

Global and Transnational History Group (GTHG) consists of historians conducting research across a broad geographic span, largely in the modern period.

This research is within the orbit of several themes, including: cultural exchanges across borders; supranational organisations, human rights, and internationalism; and colonial pasts and decolonisation.

The themes represent established and emerging areas of research interest in the School of Arts at UWE Bristol.
