From 2013 to 2017, this interdisciplinary early-career group was affiliated with the Centre of Excellence “Kulturelle Grundlagen von Integration” at University of Konstanz in Germany.The research group examined how early modern revolts in different parts of Europe and the overseas colonies were commemorated or consigned to oblivion.

Full-time members of the research group included:

PD Dr. Malte Griesse (group leader, now at Humboldt Universität Berlin)

Monika Barget (PhD candidate, now at National University of Ireland Maynooth)

David de Boer (PhD candidate)

The following researchers and student assistants were temporarily associated:

Gleb Kazakov (PhD candidate at University of Freiburg)

Miriam Rönnqvist (PhD candidate at University of Helsinki)
