Professor Adam Tooze (link is external) teaches and researches widely in the fields of twentieth-century and contemporary history. From a start in modern German history with a special focus on the history of economics and economic history his interests have widened to take in a range of themes in political, intellectual and military history, across a canvass stretching from Europe across the Atlantic. His most recent book was The Deluge: The Great War and the Remaking of the Global Order, 1916-1931. He is currently completing a new global history of the Great Financial Crisis of 2007 and after.
The Global History Workshop, held periodically over the semester, is currently engaged in on-going discussions about empire in world history, generously funded by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. For the academic year 2015-16, this venture will be subsumed under a Sawyer Seminar on “Imperial Histories and Global Regimes”, funded by the Mellon Foundation. In addition, these grants support on-going graduate workshops in Imperial and Colonial History.
