The Institute of History aims to promote research on the past, remote or near, to understand and understand the dynamics of change and the interactions of human societies over time.
His researchers consider that historical knowledge, as a critical tool for thinking and representing who we are, can and should play a prominent role in Spanish and international society of the 21st century. Our country, which occupies a unique position in the communication between Europe and America and in the relations between the two shores of the Mediterranean, faces challenges linked to identities, coexistence of cultures, globalization, migration, science, art and Environmental crises.
Among the activities that combine the daily work of researchers of the Institute of History is the training of pre and postdoctoral fellows and contractors, as well as the collaboration in temporary stays of national and foreign researchers. The Institute of History develops research projects funded by Spanish and international public and private institutions, with emphasis on those subsidized by European Union bodies. Other outstanding activities are the holding of seminars and congresses, as well as the publication of ten journals with remarkable scientific impact and the publication of several collections of historical research books.
