Big History's Big Potential

  • 1. Russian Academy of Science
  • 2. Higher School of Economics


Big History has been developing very fast indeed. We are currently observing

a ‘Cambrian explosion’ in terms of its popularity and diffusion.

Big History courses are taught in the schools and universities of several

dozen countries, including China, Korea, the Netherlands, the USA, India,

Russia, Japan, Australia, Great Britain, Germany, and many more.

The International Big History Association (IBHA) is gaining momentum

in its projects and membership. Conferences are beginning to be held

regularly (this edited volume has been prepared on the basis of the proceedings

of the International Big History Association Inaugural Conference

[see below for details]). Hundreds of researchers are involved in

studying and teaching Big History.
