What we do

We are a newly formed group with an interest in all aspects of World History.

Our first subject of study is the Pacific; Ocean, Rim, Islands and Connections. The subject presents a challenge as it has not been extensively studied putting us ahead of the curve, which is really interesting and exciting. We have found that so far our members all have different interests and perspectives to share and our initial programme starts from who and where we are.


July 2017

We are currently focusing on the Pacific World and our upcoming programme will be:

2 Oct: China; a focus on environmental history including water security and Tibet.

4 Dec: Religions of the Pacific and their impacts on pacific societies, culture and politics

If you'd like to join, please contact the group co-ordinator.
