Research Cooperations

The Department of African History at Leibniz Universität Hannover has a wide academic network. Here you will find a selection of the existing research cooperations.

Centre for Atlantic and Global Studies

The history of Africa has been closely interwoven with the entire Atlantic area for centuries. Academic collaborations and projects with an Atlantic research radius therefore require, among other things, a sound knowledge of the African context.


The Center for Atlantic and Global Studies at the Leibniz Universität Hannover has gained a special depth of focus for African perspectives thanks to its long-standing cooperation with the department of African History.


Exhibition Project "Ansichten aus Deutsch-Ostafrika"

„Ansichten aus Deutsch-Ostafrika“ is a German-Tanzanian training research and exhibition project in cooperation with the Niedersächsisches Landesmuseum/ WeltenMuseum Hannover and the College of Humanities at the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM).

This project is currently still in the planning phase.
