History and International Studies 1900-Present

Research in the History and International Studies 1900-Present specialisation addresses the interconnections and interdependence of contemporary global political, economic and cultural affairs from a multidisciplinary perspective rooted in the humanities.

Our research is grounded in historical and regional contexts, taking a wide perspective towards a broad range of theories and concepts. Our time frame is flexible, but we mostly focus on the contemporary, post-World War II era. We value regional and linguistic expertise. Our researchers investigate issues and topics by synthesising contributions from different disciplines, particularly history, area studies, and international studies broadly defined. By doing so, we both emphasise the international dimension to historical and area studies research and develop variously a comparative, transnational and global dimension to our individual and collective research.
