Kompetenzverbund Historische Wissenschaften München (Munich Historical Sciences Cluster of Excellence)

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.
