WIGH was founded in 2012 by Professors Sven Beckert and Charles S. Maier, through a grant from the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. The Initiative was envisioned as a program to strengthen programmatic cohesion for the strength and diversity that the Harvard history and social science departments already bring to global history approaches. Since its inception, WIGH has hosted visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows from all over the world, including Brazil, India, Senegal, China, Colombia, Italy, and Germany. We have organized international conferences on soccer as a global phenomenon, agricultural labor, global history of prisons, and global responses E.P. Thompson’s legacy. WIGH also hosts a biweekly “Approaches to Global History” seminar, bringing together interested faculty, students, and WIGH fellows on a continuing basis.
