Associated Researcher at the Hans-Bredow-Institut

Dr. phil. Christoph Hilgert works at the University Munich, Department of History, in the field of Publications and Public Relations at the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies (GS OSES). Christoph Hilgert studied History, Journalism and Political Sciences at the Universities of Gießen, Bristol (England) and Hamburg. He worked at the “Research Centre for the History of Broadcasting in Northern Germany” at the Hans-Bredow-Institut from March 2006 until December 2007. Before that he had already been a student assistant at the Hans-Bredow-Institut from 2002 onwards.

Since January 2008, he had been the recipient of a scholarship of the “DFG-Graduiertenkolleg” “Transnationale Medienereignisse von der Frühen Neuzeit bis zur Gegenwart” at the Justus-Liebig-University Gießen. In the framework of his PhD-project, he examined the reporting in the mass media on and for “young people” in the 1950s, with a particular emphasis on West-German and British broadcasting.

His research interests concern aspects of the research into the history of youth, the history of media, culture and mentalities, especially the history of the press and of broadcasting, of developments in media politics since 1945, the communicative dimensions of remembering, of the memory and of commemoration, as well as the medial presentation of history.

Christoph Hilgert ist member of the steering committee of the Swedish-British-German research network "Entangled Media Histories" (EMHIS).
