Department of History and Art History

No Future without History

Researchers in the Department of History and Art History examine the past by reflecting on contemporary developments. The future of Europe, the threat posed by terrorism, increasing inequality, institutions driven by collective action, new forms of citizenship, globalisation in the modern world, the role of art in identity formation, and dealing with cultural heritage are examples of the topics we focus on. The knowledge we offer is fed by a wide range of research projects.
