Mission Statement

The WHA supports and works to advance scholarship and teaching within a trans-national, trans-regional, and trans-cultural perspective. Through the researchers, teachers, students, independent scholars, and authors who are its members, the WHA fosters historical analysis undertaken not from the viewpoint of nation-states, discrete regions, or particular cultures, but from that of the human community. To this end, the WHA supports four different media for the dissemination of the most up-to-date scholarship and pedagogical advances in the field and sponsors annual public forums for the exchange and discussion of changing approaches to the study and teaching of world history at all levels. Moreover, as a founding member of the international Network of Global and World History Organizations (NOGWHISTO), which was admitted to full membership in the Comité International des Sciences Historiques (CISH) on 22 August 2010, it works with other associations across the globe to foster support for research and teaching in world history.
