Department of History

The Department of History offers programs of considerable breadth, on both the Master's and the Doctoral level, challenging canons by means of thorough empirical research and cutting-edge methodological and theoretical reflection. The Department seeks to train future scholars, academic and public leaders and professionals with a broad horizon. Teaching and research focus is on the history of Central, Southeastern and Eastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, from the 16th century to the present, going beyond these geographical and temporal boundaries in a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective.
