Gunnar Hering Lectures

Gunnar Hering (Dresden, 2 April 1934 – Vienna, 22 December 1994) was a prominent historian of South East Europe. Having held various academic positions in Mainz, Freiburg im Breisgau and Göttingen, Hering eventually became the first Professor of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Vienna in 1983. Known as a specialist in Greek and Bulgarian cultural history and church history as well as in the history of political parties in South East Europe, with excellent skills in a number of East and South East European languages and cultures, Hering decisively opened his field of study to interdisciplinary and transnational approaches. He developed several research projects dedicated to the travel literature and conceptual history of modern South East Europe. With this lecture series, we honour his memory and wish to promote a lively academic dialogue on Greek and South East European history.

This year’s speaker:

Efi Avdela, born 1952, is Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Crete. Her research focuses on gender history, history of work, history of youth as well as history of crime, e. g. (2010). Problems of Crime and Violence in Europe, 1780–2000: Essays in Criminal Justice, ed. with Shani D´Cruze and Judith Rowbotham.
