Jahrbuch für Politik und Geschichte
Politics needs and uses history – for justification and legitimation, for self-representation and reasoned debate, for its own orientation. The JPG is the first periodical in the German speaking world specifically dedicated to the diverse and often interdisciplinary research in the fields of the politics of memory and the culture of memory. As an academic forum for discussion on the political handling of history, it brings together interdisciplinary perspectives and focuses on methodological and theoretical key aspects of the most recent research on the politics of memory and the culture of memory.
Each yearbook features a main topic alongside four additional sections presenting up-to-date articles, debates of wider public relevance, original sources and overviews of new publications.
