About this Episode

On this episode, Cullan sits down with lauded historian Ulf Brunnbauer, managing director of the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg, Germany, whose research on the social history and anthropology of Southeast Europe reveals that the Balkan region is in many ways more globalized than the rest of Europe.

Ulf Brunnbauer, Academic Director of the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg, holds a PhD in history from the University of Graz, Austria (1999). In 2006, he was awarded a habilitation by the Free University of Berlin, and since 2008 he holds the Chair of Southeast and East European History at the University of Regensburg. His most recent books include In den Stürmen der Transformation (2022, with Philipp Ther and others) and The Routledge Handbook of Balkan and Southeastern European History (2021, ed. with John Lampe). He is also author of Globalizing Southeastern Europe. Emigrants, America and the State since the 19th Century (2016).
