The Centre for Modern and Contemporary History

World-class research that engages the public


Established in 2022, the Centre for Modern and Contemporary History (CMCH) supports the research of LJMU's historians, strengthens our partnerships with museums and historical societies and creates opportunities for new collaborations at local, national and international levels. It also houses LJMU History's extensive range of externally-funded research projects and Impact Case Studies.

The CMCH hosts a range of activities including seminars, workshops, book launches and other public speaking events. For updates on these events, please follow us on Twitter - @LJMUHistory.
