The Italian-German Historical Institute (ISIG) is a research centre that promotes study in modern and contemporary history, with particular emphasis on the Italian and German area.
The research team is led by Christoph Cornelißen and includes permanent researchers, collaborators and fellows. Their shared research activities are highly interdisciplinary, transnational and dedicated to the theme of “mediatization and mediality of history during the modern and contemporary periods”. Alongside this the centre’s researchers develop projects in collaboration with other institutions and conduct individual studies in political, religious, social, cultural, legal, and economic history. The study activities promoted by the centre maintain a constant dialogue with the most recent international historiographic trends.
