Centre for Contemporary and Modern History (CoMo)

CoMo brings together international research expertise that ranges across the globe. We provide a hub for people who conduct historical research on an individual basis or as part of a wider research portfolio. We share a belief that the modern and contemporary world is best understood as an interconnected whole and we bring a historical perspective to current events.
