What Is Global History?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in Global History for high school and college students. 


What Is Global History?


Global history, world history, or transnational history is a field of study that emerged as a distinct academic field in the 1980s. It examines history from a global perspective. It is not to be confused with comparative history, which, like global history, deals with multiple cultures and nations, but not globally. Global history looks for common patterns that emerge across all cultures. World historians use a thematic approach, with two major focal points: integration and difference.

Why Study Global History?

Global history embraces all humanity, not just certain nations, ethnic groups, or civilizations. Why should schools ask teachers and students to investigate a subject that encompasses the whole world and its people? Global history emphasizes three rationales for investigating the human past on a global scale.



Knowing Who We Are


The study of global history is the broadest approach to who we are as individuals and members of different groups. Exploring how humankind has changed since our ancestors walked the earth is the best way to grapple with the question of what makes us special and unique concerning other living species. National history teaches us what is distinctive about a particular land and people. Global history throws light on human beings’ distinctive characteristics and how their thought, behavior, and interactions have changed over time.


The National Standards for History remind us:


Historical memory is the key to self-identity, seeing one’s place in the stream of time, and connectedness with all of humankind. We are part of an ancient chain, and the long hand of the past is upon us—for good or ill—just as our hands will rest on our descendants for years to come. Denied knowledge of one’s roots and one’s place in the great stream of human history, the individual is deprived of the fullest sense of self and of that sense of shared community on which one’s fullest personal development, as well as responsible citizenship, depends.


In short, global history helps us think about what it means to be human and the characteristics that all humans have in common.

Preparing to Live in the World


Global history helps prepare young people for college studies, international experience, and civic life participation. It helps get them ready for the roles they will inevitably play as citizens of their country and the world. A “global citizen” is simply a national citizen who knows and cares about the history and contemporary affairs of all humankind, a person who can in some measure think, speak, and write about world issues and problems with intelligence and confidence.


Most of us are generally aware of world interconnections and interdependence. We know that the internet allows people to trade stocks at blinding speed, that hundreds of millions of people simultaneously watch the Olympic Games, and that the threat of global warming requires cooperation among all governments. We know that we live in a border-crossing, migration-prone, multiple identity-taking worlds than vague. Addressing today’s world conditions, however, requires more than a vague awareness of these realities. Global history helps us better understand how and why the world got to be the way it is. It gives attention to the histories of other nations and civilizations and the differences among them. But it particularly emphasizes the history, problems, and challenges that humans have shared simply because they are humans.



Attaining Cultural Literacy on a World Scale


Global history contributes to our cultural literacy. Unlike other species, human beings have the gift of language that is symbolic of thinking and communication. That means humans also have what global history calls collective learning. It’s the ability to learn from one another and transmit knowledge from one generation to the next.


Communicating in any language requires that we share common knowledge, information, vocabulary, and conceptual tools. We need shared knowledge and understandings partly because we live in a world where people in specialized occupations and professions tend to use special words, terms, and concepts that some people might not understand.


Making global history a core subject in schools broadens the fund of knowledge that we all share. It helps us speak and write to one another in clearer ways. This does not mean that global history courses should be the same in every school district. But societies should aim for general agreement regarding the common stock of both world-scale knowledge and historical thinking skills that children should possess when they graduate from high school.


All past societies that we know of have had an endowment of collective knowledge. Global history is shared knowledge that citizens, whatever their country of allegiance, need to function on our planet in the twenty-first century. The complexity of human interrelations today means that cultural literacy must be global in range and depth.


Facing History creates resources to empower teachers and students to think critically about pivotal moments in history.

Why Do Students Struggle with Global History?


Global history spans prehistoric times all the way to the present. Needless to say, that’s a lot of material! And because there’s so much to cover, the pace in class can be fast. 


Many students struggle with organizing a huge amount of content, especially when it involves countries they may not be familiar with. Some also find it challenging to understand the details but also step away and see the bigger picture. As a result, students may not always see how events are related to each other or their cause-and-effect.


Doing well in global history requires more than just the recall of dates and information. Students must read critically and analyze passages and then defend their arguments with evidence using their written and oral communication skills.
