German-Israeli Research Cooperation in the Humanities (1970-2000): Studies on Scholarship and Bilaterality

The bilateral research project will focus on the beginnings of German-Israeli research cooperation in the Humanities, especially German Literature and History, up to the year 2000. The very process of establishing those fields of teaching and research among the involved German and Israeli protagonists and institutions will be examined. Besides a comparative outlook, the unique characteristics of each of the relevant institutions will be highlighted and the leading figures, their biographies and their involvement will be recorded in oral history interviews.
