Welcome to the Center for World History

Since the early 2000s, the UCSC Center for World History has fostered a rich set of lectures, conferences, pedagogical workshops, and scholarly conversations. This programming enhances the intellectual life of faculty and students at UCSC across numerous disciplines interested in the human past.

Our events are open to all members of the UCSC community and to the general public.


The heart of the CWH is bringing scholars together. Dialogue is vital for World History, connecting scholars working on far-flung regions to identify points of convergence and comparison.
