Professor Dominik Geppert is the Gerda Henkel Visiting Professor for 2016/2017. He will spend a year researching and teaching at the German Historical Institute London and at the London School of Economics.
The Gerda Henkel Visiting Professorship is a co-operation of the Department of International History at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Gerda Henkel Foundation, the German Historical Institute London (GHIL), and the Gerda Henkel Professor’s home university. Its purpose is to promote awareness in Britain of German research on the history of the German Federal Republic and the German Democratic Republic, and to stimulate comparative work on German history in a European context.
