The Global and Transregional Studies Research Group (GTS) brings together an inter-disciplinary group of scholars at the College of Arts and the University of Lincoln who share research interests in international, transregional, and global studies.
Researchers are increasingly interested in transregional research approaches in history, art/architectural/material history, social and political history, heritage, music, archaeology and the digital heritage, among others. ‘Global comparisons’ present epistemological challenges that are shared among several disciplines present at the University of Lincoln. Scholars in the group are developing excellent research and publication projects on a wide variety of topics, some of these themes are, for example, Pan-European cultural circulations, the material histories of Asia and Africa, urban and architectural histories of the Caribbean and Latin America, North American histories, histories of architecture in the Global North, and transnational histories of empire, sexuality, gender and political history among others. Our members also explore the histories of race in Britain and the experiences of diaspora communities and their descendants in the UK.
The research group has the largest membership in the College of Arts, meets regularly and its activities include a seminar series, group peer-feedback sessions and workshops. The GTS is coordinated by Dr Laura Fernández-González from the School of History and Heritage.
Research Themes and Sustainable Development Goals
Our research is embedded in the following University research themes, a unique set of areas that key into our goals as a civic university undertaking internationally significant research with local relevance, and as researchers engaged in the pursuit of excellence. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals badges represent our research and collaborations in terms of their contribution to the issues the world faces today and into the future.
