Dr Mathew Turner is Munich Bound!

Massive congratulations to our member, Dr Mathew Turner, who was recently awarded a four-month fellowship to conduct postdoctoral research at the Zentrum für Holocaust-Studien am Institut für Zeitgeschichte (The Centre for Holocaust Studies at the Institute of Contemporary History) in Munich, Germany.

Mathew’s research project will examine the role of West German historians as Holocaust educators. Specifically, the project will consider how fears of rising antisemitism, historical distortions, and right-wing extremism – as well as the social and political need to counter such forces through public education of the Holocaust – were met by a maturing West German historical profession increasingly able to meet such needs.

Mathew will be based at the Zentrum from the beginning of June until the end of September 2018
