Podium Zeitgeschichte

There are many questions in the air – and many will stay there if they do not become the subject of discussion. Vierteljahrshefte für Zeitgeschichte has sought to change this with its “Podium Zeitgeschichte.” Generally once a year, underlying problems in the field and current debates in contemporary history are discussed in a dialogical, international, and cross-media format, and are taken to the podium both figuratively and literally. Essays written by renowned historians introduce each edition; the authors then meet for discussion at a public event held at the Leibniz Institute for Contemporary History in Munich; the discussion is documented as a transcript with film excerpts on the VfZ website; and readers have the opportunity to take part in the discussion in the forum there as well.
