  World History - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
World History is a field of historical study that emerged as a distinct academic field in the 1980s.
World historians use a thematic approach, with two major focal points: integration (how processes of world history have drawn people of the world together) and difference (how patterns of world history reveal the diversity of the human experience).
The advent of World History as a distinct field of study was heralded in the 1980s by the creation of the World History Association[1] and of graduate programs at a handful of universities.
