CHI - Contemporary History

Contemporary History, CHI, is a research group with a focus on a wide range of topics from the late 19th Century to today. It is a period when modern times becomes manifest; it is a period in which democratization continually is confronted by autocratic or totalitarian tendencies, and a period of industrial revolutions, the welfare state and a complete renewal of everyday life.

CHI has defined three focus areas:

  • Welfare state and modernization;
  • International organizations, transnational movements, and civic diplomacy;
  • Environment, energy and sustainability.

CHI aims to improve the research in contemporary history generally through its range of distinctive research activities, annual programme of events, and publications.
