LBI for European History and Public Spheres

How should contemporary history of Europe be researched and written?

Can we still rely on the well-known national narratives of past generations in order to understand present-day Europe and its place in a globalized world?

These are only two among the leading questions motivating the activities of the LBI for European History and Public Spheres (LBI EHP). It aims at contributing to a multi-perspective and transnational historiography of Europe based on empirical, source based, and interdisciplinary research projects.
