Globalization

Partially as a result of the growing dmemand among students for non-Western history, the IEMH is starting to attract members interested in the processes of globalization during the Early Modern Period. Their interests range from economics, cultural interaction, and how these histories are perceived in the present day. Here are a few of our members' publications in this area thus far, but you can expect more to come!
