Global and Transnational History

History does not stop at state borders. Both pre-modern and modern economic systems, for example, involved trade networks across borders; frontiers and borders have furthermore never easily corresponded to the fluid and changing borders of actual communities or even state authorities. Along with a teaching field in world/global history, faculty members in this cluster research and teach in areas from the ancient Mediterranean world to the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages to contemporary Asia and Africa. They include:
