Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century: Comparative Historical Experience

at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena is an institute for the interdisciplinary and transnational study of 20th century history of East Central and Southeastern Europe.

The directors of the institute are Prof. Włodzimierz Borodziej and Prof. Joachim von Puttkamer. The institute was created in October 2010 as the ninth of the Käte Hamburger Centers funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

An international team of visiting fellows and permanent academic staff conducts research at the Kolleg in an environment of intensive scholarly dialogue and exchange on the history of Eastern Europe in the 20th century. There are five main areas of research: violence; statehood; modernity; intellectual horizons; and history and the public sphere. Our transnational perspective on the entire region of East Central and Southeastern Europe makes it possible to identify common lines of development and specific differences among countries, and to build a new foundation for a historical analysis of historical events in this region.
