The history program and its members host a variety of events each year, ranging from public lectures, panel discussions, workshops and conferences, to information sessions and study breaks.

History Behind the Headlines

The key events you read about in your morning twitter feed or on your favorite news sites are usually not unique in world affairs. They have a background, a context, that makes them more understandable and often more interesting.

Globalizing Histories

Supported by the NYUAD Research Institute, Globalizing Histories brings distinguished international historians to campus for a public talk and a seminar with students and faculty.

In addition, the history program also hosts a research seminar each semester which is designed to facilitate discussion about current and innovative research with students, faculty, and the local academic community.
