Statement on January 2017 Executive Order

As an international group of scholars and teachers with a mission to “advance scholarship and teaching within a trans-national, trans-regional, and trans-cultural perspective,” the WHA condemns discriminatory actions and promotes evidence-based research, the integration of diverse histories, the free exchange of ideas, and education for the common good of the human community. We supported the statement issued by the American Historical Association on the January 2017 executive order, and will continue to work with the AHA and other scholarly societies on actions that support our mission. We encourage our members to provide historical context on current issues from a global perspective whenever the opportunity arises. All people are welcome to participate in events sponsored by the WHA, as we work to advance historical knowledge and prepare students and the public for an interdependent world. 

Michele Vickers Forman, 1946–2017

The World History Bulletin Needs You!

The World History Bulletin is the semiannual, fully peer-reviewed publication of the World History Association that is devoted to raising questions, fostering debates, developing pedagogy, and evolving the field of world history.  We welcome short-form essays (roughly 1,500-3,000 words in length) on all aspects of world historical scholarship including pedagogy, research, and theory. Topics may include any period or geographic focus in history. Reviews of books and other scholarly works, or original syllabi are welcome, as well.

Submissions for the World History Bulletin should be in Microsoft Word or similar electronic format, and should follow the style guidelines of the Journal of World History described above. Please address any submissions or inquiries to: Jared Poley, Editor, jpoley@gsu.edu.  Historians and disciplinarily allied scholars interested in guest-editing a selection of essays on a particular theme are strongly encouraged to contact the editor.
