 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) researches the historical foundations of Europe in the modern era.
Its research projects are developed in an interdisciplinary way by the sections of religious history and general
history. They span the historical periods from the beginning of the early modern period to contemporary history.
Europe is investigated from a trans-border perspective as a communication space, the internal and external
borders of which have been repeatedly redefined by diverse transcultural processes.

The central theme of the current research programme at the IEG is negotiating difference – the ways in which
difference is established, confronted and enabled in its religious, cultural, political and social dimensions. Europe
is viewed as a laboratory for the development of forms of the regulation and limitation, but also of the creation
and maintenance, of otherness and inequality. The conflictual dynamic of the space known as Europe resulted
from diverse interactions and interconnections that have led to exchange, acculturation and integration as well as
to differentiation and confrontation on the continent and beyond its borders.

The IEG forsters the establishment of digital research infrastructures in the historical sciences as well as the
implementation and dissemination of digital techniques and tools in historical research.
