The New England Regional World History Association (NERWHA), an independent affiliate of the international World History Association (WHA), exists to advance scholarship, teaching, and the public understanding of world history throughout New England. NERWHA supports and works to advance scholarship and teaching within a trans-national, trans-regional, and trans-cultural perspective. Through the researchers, teachers, students, independent scholars, and authors who are its members, NERWHA fosters historical analysis undertaken not from the viewpoint of nation-states, discrete regions, or particular cultures, but from that of the human community. To this end, NERWHA supports a number of academic and pedagogical activities and forms of outreach, including semi-annual symposia, held respectively in the fall and spring. At these symposia researchers and teachers assemble to discuss both the most recent research and developments in the field and ways in which these breakthroughs can be integrated into the classroom at all levels, K-20.
