What is International History Now?

International history has been around since the dawn of the discipline, defining History’s earliest aims, as the study of the primacy of foreign policy, or diplomacy. Yet there are only a few historians who name themselves international, and few departments, courses, or chairs that announce this subfield in history departments in Australia, or in the world. But what is International History today?
In the twenty-first century, in the wake of the transnational turn, International History is being recalibrated, reinvented and re-energised. This project will reflect on the state of international history, from its ‘new’ foci on international organizations and ideas, its new archives and new methodologies, to its connections to the ongoing discussions on globalizing historiography.
