The History Departments at Temple University in Philadelphia and at Erfurt University have developed an essential partnership. We exchange graduate students and faculty, co-teach classes and colloquia, attend workshops,lectures, and formal and informal discussion, co-supervise dissertations, and co-author books. Since 2018, our partnership has been funded by the ISAP program of the German Academic Exchange Service.
