The History Cluster at the Ludwig Boltzmann Society is engaged with the exploration and teaching of European history, with an emphasis on twentieth-century history and a special focus on changes in cultural history and methodological innovations. The aim of the cluster is to develop greater networking between the four institutes and to support the joint study of intersections in research on democracy and democratic crises, ethnocide and the Holocaust, and war and its consequences, as well as migration and social and cultural history.
