The History programme has a strong research tradition. Our staff have established reputations in their areas of expertise and the programme as a whole has an energetic research culture.

Areas of research strength include New Zealand, Māori and Pacific history, British, Irish and Scottish history, European history and Asian history. Staff are internationally respected in the fields of intellectual history and the history of political thought, the history of science, the history of emotions, empire and colonialism, migrations and mobilities, and Indigenous history.
