Stefan Kirmse – Cross-cutting research

Eurasian Borderlands, Past and Present

PD Dr. Stefan B. Kirmse

Stefan Kirmse is conducting research at the intersection of history and cultural anthropology on the internal and external borderlands of the Eurasian space. In different research projects, he is engaging with the relationship between centre and periphery in Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia from mid-16th century to the present. Shifting borders and frontier regions, transregional and global interconnections, and the political and legal engagement with cultural diversity are central to these projects.
