Editorial Working Groups


Each of the three modules – migration, knowledge and education, and Germanness – was compiled by a four-member editorial working group. Over the course of two years, each group met four times. Meetings were held on both sides of the Atlantic. German- and American-based researchers, and junior and senior scholars were represented equally in each group. The composition of the groups guaranteed a bicultural approach in keeping with the GHI’s longstanding emphasis on transatlantic perspectives. The inclusion of both established and early-career academics ensured a diversity of viewpoints, while underscoring the GHI’s commitment to Nachwuchsförderung (support for young scholars).
