Bernhard Struck

Visiting Scholar 2015-2016


Bernhard Struck

Struck is Associate Professor in Modern European History and was the founding Director of the Institute for Transnational & Spatial History at University of St Andrews, United Kingdom, from 2009-2015. He holds a Ph.D. in History from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and the University of Paris I, Sorbonne, France. He is an historian of late modern Europe with a main focus on the German lands, France and Poland in the 18th and 19th centuries. He is currently completing a monograph entitled Mapping Germanies: Cartography, Territories, and the Nation, c.1760s-1880s.

At the Center, Struck will continue work on a co-authored book entitled Modern Europe, 1760-2000: A Transnational History. The book is intended as an introductory textbook to late modern European history. It will highlight the cross-border flows, transnational entanglements and ruptures that have shaped Europe and its societies over the past 250 years. Instead of focusing on a purely chronological perspective, the book intends to tell a history of late modern Europe through the lens of actors and groups that shaped both nation-states as well as the many cross-border interactions.
