East Central and South Eastern Europe
The editors in the field of East Central and South Eastern European history initiate reviews of publications on the territories of the Habsburg, Russian, German, Swedish and Ottoman monarchies once belonging to the region from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic and the Black Sea including the Balkans. In special focus are the historical Bohemian, Polish, Hungarian, Balkan and Baltic lands, as well the history of single states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechoslovakia resp. Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia resp. her successor states, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Albania and Greece). Importance is given to sub-national and supra-national regionalisation in the area. Although the preferred time period are the 19th and 20th centuries works on Early Modern times are not neglected. Special emphasis is given to the interconnectedness of the regions. This is why the editors are in close cooperation with the e-journal geschichte.transnational and the team within the Leipzig-based editorial board of H-Soz+Kult that deals with Western European history.
