The research group Communities Comparisons Connections brings together historians and social scientists who aim to study historical processes through the scope of a varying set of spatial, social, religious and political geographies in comparative perspective. Our focus on Communities Comparisons and Connections is applied to a variety of research topics: case- and regional studies in comparative perspective; broader societal shifts with global ramifications; and various models of explanation for social change on a global and longue-durée scale. We pay attention to different units of analysis (societies, states, civilizations, networks, systems etc.) and to methods to investigate processes on a global scale (comparative analysis, system-analysis, network-analysis etc.)
CCC is a cross departmental research group, bringing together a varied group of scholars, focussing on a broad spectre of thematic, temporal and regional foci, ranging from the Middle-East, via Africa and Asia, to Europe and the Americas. During our monthly meetings we discuss our current affairs; new work of our colleagues; as well as new developments in the field.
Below you find an overview of the different points of particular interest within the research group. On the left you can find our activities, publications, links, contact information, and an outline of the educational programmes in which we offer our insights.
