Imre Kertész Kolleg
The Imre Kertész Kolleg researches the history of the lands between the Baltic Sea, the Adriatic and the Black Sea. In the 20th century, the experience of National Socialism, the Holocaust, state socialism, the peaceful revolutions of 1989 and the transformation period have been formative for the region as a whole. The Kolleg engages with these historical experiences transcending national boundaries and national narratives.
Research at the Kolleg is conducted by historians as well as by scholars from neighbouring disciplines. For the most part, they come from Germany, Eastern- and Western Europe and North America. Students and PhD candidates in history and other humanities benefit from this international research centre.
Founded in October 2010 as the ninth Käte Hamburger Kolleg and funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), the Kolleg was led by its directors Professor Joachim von Puttkamer and Professor Włodzimierz Borodziej until 2016. After a positive evaluation the Kolleg was renewed on 1 October 2016 for a second six-year period of funding and is now under the directorship of Professor von Puttkamer and Dr Michal Kopeček.
