The chair’s teaching and research activities focus on the historic cultural landscapes of east-central and eastern Europe, which were largely shaped by their multiethnic and intercultural circumstances. Plurality and diversity and the resultant contacts and conflicts are being studied in various projects. The history of east-central and eastern European Jewry is a particular emphasis here (dissertation and edition projects, externally funded projects), alongside the history and culture of Poland and Russia to which several projects are dedicated.
