The Global History Lab (GHL) is a platform for learning, skill development and collaboration in the creation of new narratives across global divides.
Using cutting-edge technologies, innovative pedagogical practices and training in oral history methods, the GHL educates students about the history of globalization and prepares them to become knowledge producers for a wider world. The program enlists universities and NGO’s to engage in a new model of global education through peer-to-peer exchanges. It pushes the study and application of history into new humanitarian frontiers by integrating displaced peoples and refugees into its network. It promotes human capabilities of understanding by developing narrative voices and listening skills between strangers. The GHL is committed to the pursuit of the production of knowledge about the global past globally — in a way that is innovative, economical and reaches across the world’s fractures.
