A large cluster of scholars examine global society and politics since the turn of the 20th century, with particular emphasis on issues of nationalism and global governance since 1914.
The group is centered on the study of Europe, but with important links to Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas. Its members pay particular attention to the interplay of science and technology with evolving political ideals and practical governmental arrangements. Researchers consider the rise and decline of Communism, the legacies of imperialism and decolonization, and the formation and function of the EU.
