2014 was an especially prolific year for the Department of History: as authors and (co-)editors, faculty members published altogether 12 books with leading international academic publishers. The chronological coverage is from late antiquity to communist times, the geographic spread is truly transnational (even transcontinental and global), and the topics and approaches range from religious studies, political thought and intellectual history, through history of science and history of empires, to questions of identity, social and political history.
