Together with History, Ethnology, History of Ideas and Archaeology, it is part of the Historical Studies research area, which currently has about 25 doctoral students. Shared profile areas within Historical Studies include, among others, contemporary history and studies of the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe.
