Institute of Modern History

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Modern History at the University of Tübingen!

Current topics and research projects

We investigate historical phenomena between the 15th and 20th centuries. Epoch boundaries and narratives about "the modern age" are put to the test by working together on different topics across epochs. We deal with religion and mission, knowledge and translation, social formations, economy, material culture and consumption. In doing so, we look at historical phenomena in their local and global dimensions and their transnational entanglements and disentanglements.
