History is used as an argument in almost every discussion on politics or society today. Delving into the past, however, requires historical and methodological skills and knowledge.
Munich has been a centre of historical basic research since the mid-19th century. The Munich Historical Sciences Cluster of Excellence was founded in 2014 with the aim of taking this tradition forward into a new, digital age. It also serves as a forum where lectures, discussions and digital media are used to bring history to the general public.
