Zwischen Universalisierung und Individualisierung: Ethnogeographische Karten in und zu Ostmitteleuropa 1900-1950 im internationalen Vergleich

Currently I research on the history of ethnic mapping of Central-Europe in the first half of the 20. century. I focus my PhD-project on the mapping of various national space contructions and the role of the international knowledge transfer prosesses in the development of the ethnic mapping. In my thesis I comparise the various detailed ethnographical map series, what were produced for the peace negotations after the WWI.
