The California World History Association is an organization dedicated to researching, writing, and teaching history from a global perspective. CWHA seeks to provide a forum in which scholars, teachers, and the general public can explore human history beyond the limitations of nations and states. We encourage the interaction between those researching world history and those teaching the subject in secondary, post-secondary, and graduate settings. CWHA is an affiliate chapter of the World History Association.
