Research Profile

The Junior Professorship examines the states, inhabitants, and cultures of Central and Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. We focus on Germans and German-speaking inhabitants as well as the local and transregional exchange processes they were involved in. In particular, German-speaking Jewry and members of the German-speaking aristocracy are brought into focus to explore changes in the lifeworld in the age of empires and of nationalism.
The research projects are guided by cultural studies questions regarding the historical actors’ mental horizons and their options for action.
