The University of Warwick (UK) and Monash University (Australia) have signed a new agreement to create an alliance between the two universities that will clearly establish both as “globally networked universities”.
SOPHIS is currently working with Warwick on three important projects
- A team led by Adam Clulow and David Garrioch is working with staff at Warwick’s Global History and Culture Centre to design a new undergraduate unit focused on global history.
- Peter Howard, Convenor of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, is collaborating with staff at Warwick and other international partners to develop 5-year research and teaching plan focused on Medieval and Renaissance History.
- The Australian Centre for Jewish Civilization has received funding to develop a joint program with Warwick in Holocaust and Genocide studies that incorporates research and conferences.
