Contemporary & Modern History


Welcome to Contemporary and Modern History (CoMo).

The Centre for Contemporary and Modern History (CoMo) brings together international research expertise that ranges across west and eastern Europe, the Mediterranean (including north Africa), the Indian sub-continent, East Asia and the Americas.

We provide a hub for people who conduct historical research—whether on an individual basis or as part of a wider research portfolio—and share a belief that the modern and contemporary world is best understood as an interconnected whole.

CoMo is therefore structured around a series of transnational and comparative research themes that bring together scholars scholars working on different places and areas, and so encourage the connections and unexpected interactions that characterize the contemporary world.
