About this Fellow
I was trained in history, German literature and political science and for some time worked as a senior lecturer in the department of political science at the University of Freiburg, Germany. My first professorships were at the German Open University and the Graduate Institute Geneva. Since 1999 I have been a professor of 19th and 20th-century history at the University of Konstanz, Germany. My global history of the 19th century, 'The Transformation of the World', was published in 2014 in a revised English version. A co-authored interpretive history of decolonization and a collection of my essays on "global processes" (in German) were published in 2017. My revised edition of an older monograph on the European Enlightenment and Asia was published in English as 'Unfabling the East: The Enlightenment’s Encounter with Asia' in 2018.
