Department of European and World History
In principle the field of European and World History is vast covering all historical eras and geographical areas. In practice, our department has particular expertise in modern and contemporary history and we often seek to understand and explain phenomena and processes up until the present day. We examine history from a number of different perspectives, thereby making visible and understandable polyphonic and entangled histories. Our research is international and transnational. One of our key strengths consists of possessing a versatile form of expertise in European and World history, which contributes to understanding the interaction of Europe with the wider world. Finnish mobility abroad and participation in transnational processes also belongs to our research agenda.
