New EI Director in post

20 September 2013

The UCL European Institute is pleased to announce Mary Fulbrook, FBA, Professor of German History at UCL and currently Dean of Social and Historical Sciences, as new Director.

Mary takes over from Richard Bellamy, who has been granted exceptional leave from UCL to become Director of the Max Weber Programme at the European University Institute in Florence. 

An outstanding academic, Fellow of the British Academy, as well as highly experienced with both academic leadership and engagement with the wider public, Mary is to lead the Institute for the next three years.

As a historian, Mary's research interests range 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 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 Nazi persecution among perpetrators as well as victims, and with questions of inter-generational transmission. She has previously directed an AHRC-funded project on State and Society in the GDR, and held a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship for a project on Generations and Violence through the German Dictatorships. 

Among other professional commitments, Mary Fulbrook is currently a member of the Council of the British Academy. Formerly Chair of the German History Society and a member of the Advisory Board of the German Historical Institute London, Fulbrook is currently a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Memorial Foundation for the former concentration camps of Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora; and a member of the International Advisory Board of the Bundeskanzler-Willy-Brandt-Stiftung.
