European history since the 18th century with a focus on Germany and France
In teaching we offer courses on the three periods of Modern European History:
Early Modern History (16th to 18th century),
Modern History (19th to early 20th century) and
Contemporary History (20th century).
Our courses offer students either an overview of the given period or an in depth-analysis of key characteristics of historical developments. The geographical focus of our teaching is on German, French and British history.
