Munich Centre for Global History

Breadcrumb Navigation



The Munich Centre for Global History understands global history as a particular research perspective that focuses on the significance of global connections and entanglements and examines the prerequisites, conditions and meanings of global exchange in human history. The centre is the principal clearing house for research in global history at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Munich higher learning environment. It also operates as an incubator for innovative research endeavours in global history. New initiatives can originate in the exchange between the different projects at the centre, in the stimuli received from the lecture series or the international fellowship programme or in the centre's promotion of young researchers.

The Munich Centre for Global History attaches great importance on contributing to the ongoing conceptual re-evaluation of global history on the basis of profound empirical research.
