Current lines of research

are generally designed to transcend the historiographical boundaries represented by the years 1933, 1945, 1949, and 1989. General trends of the modern age thus become visible in the metropolis of Hamburg. This strategy of focussing on local and regional history puts the experiences and perceptions of individuals and social groups at the centre of interest.
Research results of larger projects are made available through two academic book series published by the FZH: “Hamburger Beiträge zur Sozial- und Zeitgeschichte” with Wallstein Verlag of Göttingen; “Forum Zeitgeschichte”, with Metropol Verlag Berlin.
