Security History Group

The Security History group’s research focuses on the contested concept of security. What did it mean to different people of various backgrounds, and how has the use and meaning of the concept evolved over time? National, collective and trans-imperial security, multilateralism and international diplomacy, maritime power, and the Interbellum period are the central themes of the group’s research into the 19th century that stretch well beyond the borders of Europe and into northern Africa and the Middle East.

The group’s research on developments of the past 100 years zooms in on the rise of extremism and terrorism, and the evolving topic of cyber and information security. In pursuit of these themes and questions, the Security History group has developed its own, distinct method and approach of historicizing security.
