Mary Fulbrook is Professor of German History at UCL. She studied at Newnham College, Cambridge, as an undergraduate, and at Harvard University, where she did her MA and PhD; she has also held a Harvard Center for European Studies Krupp Fellowship at the LSE, and a Lady Margaret Research Fellowship at New Hall (now Murray Edwards College), Cambridge.
She is currently directing an AHRC collaborative project (2010-2015) on 'Reverberations of War in Germany and Europe since 1945'. her own strand of this project deals with legacies of the Holocaust among perpetrators as well as victims, and with questions of inter-generational transmission.
Mary Fulbrook's research interests have ranged across a variety of fields, including religion and society in early modern Europe, the German dictatorships of the twentieth century, Europe after the Holocaust, and historiography and social theory. She has directed an AHRC-sponsored collaborative research project on 'The "Normalisation of Rule'? State and Society in the GDR, 1961-1979' (2002-06), and held a three year Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship (2006-09) for a book on 'Dissonant Lives: Generations and Violence through the German Dictatorships'.
