GHI Research Projects

The German Historical Institute’s work is at the forefront of international historical and interdisciplinary research and covers a broad geographic, methodological, and thematic spectrum. The GHI’s research agenda is international and includes German, European, and American history as well as comparative and transnational history. The Institute’s research projects also represent the remarkable diversity of approaches that has come to characterize the field of history in recent decades – including political, economic, social, cultural, gender, religious, environmental, and legal history. Current foci of GHI research include the history of knowledge and digital history, as well as the subject areas “religion and ethnicity” and “space and boundaries.”

GHI research in transnational and comparative history includes several collaborative research projects (please see below). The research projects of GHI research fellows fit into four broad areas: transnational and comparative history, global history, American history, and German history.
