Research interests

I am currently researching eastern German attitudes towards life in post-unification Germany. My MPhil project is centred around the emotional atmosphere in the state of Thuringia between 1990 and 1994. It looks at the economic, political and, primarily, social climate during this time period. The research contributes to the growing narrative that, in contrast with contemporary reports, many eastern Germans experienced great personal and collective difficulties after unification.


The main aim of my MPhil is to lay the groundwork for a PhD. After my Master's Degree I would like to explore a connection between the unification process and modern-day political and social attitudes in eastern Germany. In order to tackle this research question, I must first get to grips with the political, social and economic situation in the immediate post-unification years.
