Research domains

  • Humanities-Social sciences

In History, research is conducted in a wide chronological range, from the late Middle Ages to our time. The projects are often interdisciplinary and international. Our expertise concerns areas such as gender history, cultural history, media history, financial history, biographical research, migration, the Holocaust, democracy and political economy and culture, as well as didactic issues.

Cross-faculty activities go towards sociology, media and gender studies. History also has collaborations on didactic issues in a broad sense, including educational history. Researchers in History are also involved in various research environments both nationally and internationally. Through for example cooperation with the National Graduate School in Historical Studies, we contribute to the development of the graduate program, and we collaborate with the Humboldt-Universität, Berlin, and Bielefeld University.
