Welcome to the Scottish Centre for Global History

The Scottish Centre for Global History (SCGH) is a research centre and public history space for postgraduates and academics from around the world to share their ideas and research in Global History.

Through our Research Seminars, Global History Blog and Podcast, our platform focuses on the development of global history; the democratisation of the field; and stimulating debate. Additionally, our Global History Resources provide researchers with a variety of resources to aid their research, such as our repository of online archives and databases.

We are flexible in how contributors would like to approach any potential project with us. For more information see our Write For Us and Podcast pages.
