German Historical Institute Paris



The German Historical Institute Paris (DHI Paris) works under the three guiding principles of “Research – Mediation – Qualification” in the field of French, Franco-German, and Western European history from Late Antiquity to the present, as well as in digital historiography. Another focus is the research on the history of Africa that is conducted in cooperation with the Maria Sibylla Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa in Accra (Ghana). Thanks to its location, its international team, and its dense network of cooperation partners, the DHI Paris mediates between different academic cultures and promotes an internationally oriented historiography.
