Research and Interests
Richard Horowitz joined the History Department at California State University Northridge in 1999 and became Department Chair in 2010. Trained as a historian of modern China, he subsequently developed a second specialization in the emerging field of World History. His research explores the intersection of China and processes of global integration from the 1820s to the 1920s. When he is free from administrative duties, he teaches courses on China, Japan, world history, and historical methods. Dr. Horowitz is also the World History Section Editor of the journal History Compass.
