About

With generous funding from the Anneliese Maier Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and support from Yale University, this five-year project aims to sustain a global research network of historians.  The project will fund short-term research projects, travel to archives and libraries, and convene conferences and other research fora.  Headquartered in Germany and the United States, our research network stretches across the globe, always emphasizing work that cuts across geographies, chronologies, and methods.  Our interests are wide and creativity is encouraged.
