Our Blog posts cross and reflect boundaries not merely between nation states or cultures but also between social, economic, religious, ethnic, gender, and other entities. The blog thus fosters research on the dynamics in Europe from the early modern period into the twentieth century and the immediate past. It is open to a broad variety of topics, both with regard to methodological approaches and fields of research. Methodologically, it brings together approaches such as comparative studies, the study of transfer processes and entanglements, the histoire croisée, or international, imperial and global history. Beyond that, the blog takes up all fields of history throughout Europe in the modern period.

Subject to change, major themes reflected in the categories available for posts are:

  • European Mobilities
  • Global & Imperial History of Europe
  • Europe from the Margins
  • Environmental History
  • Uses of the Past & European Memory
  • Writing European History
