Kora Baumbach

Kora BaumbachSince 2012 I’ve been working at the Lichtenberg-Kolleg. As academic coordinator I’m in charge of two of the research groups at the Kolleg: “Human Rights, Constitutional Politics and Religious Diversity” and “Reappraising the Anne Frank Diaries: Context and Receptions” (in cooperation with the Fritz Bauer Institute in Frankfurt/Main), that applies the administrative but also the academic coordination and the collaboration with both institutions.

Moreover I work together with the related departments at university on a concept for the career development for the Junior Research Fellows, staying at the Lichtenberg-Kolleg.

My special research interest lies in the field of the protest movements of the second half of the 20th century, more specifically on the literature of the student movement end of the 1960s and beginning of the 1970s and on the relationship between South American revolutionary movements and the student protests in that period.

Right now I’m working on the reception of Anne Frank’s Diary in the former GDR.
