Zur Person

My broad interests are in colonial history, transnational history, comparative history, environmental history, and the history of Europe and Africa. I have recently finished my dissertation at the European University Institute in Florence entitled "Colonial Internationalism: How Cooperation Among Experts Reshaped Colonialism 1830-1950)." It shows how self-styled colonial experts who established the International Colonial Institute in 1893 reshaped colonial policies in fields as different as colonial law and labor recruitment, tropical agriculture and medicine, as well as the training of colonial administrators. I am currently turning the dissertation into a book.

My new book project is on the history of repatriations in a global perspective and examines the various attempts of European governments, NGOs, and international organizations to make migration undone. I use a critical approach to the concept of repatriation by situating it in a historical context that extends roughly from the 1930s to the 1990s.

My most recent publications explore African perspectives on the First World War and the Weimar Republic.  I also wrote on the interconnections between different empires and imperial lobby groups, and examined key concepts such as the "West" in colonial discourse
