Explore publications by scholars in the School of Historical Studies whose varigated work touches on a broad range of intellectual disciplines in all fields of historical research.  The School is concerned principally with the history of western, near eastern and Asian civilizations, with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman civilization, the history of Europe (medieval, early modern, and modern), the Islamic world, East Asian studies, art history, the history of science and philosophy and modern international relations. The School also supports scholarship in the field of Music Studies, and each year some scholars are invited who are pursuing historical research that falls outside these traditional fields.
