Guest Researcher at Leibniz-Institut für Medienforschung | Hans-Bredow-Institut from Oktober 2023 until end of January 2024

Maximilian Brockhaus has been a university assistant (prae-doc) at the Department of Contemporary History at the University of Vienna since July 2021. Building on his bachelor's degree in journalism and communication studies and a master's degree in the interdisciplinary program "Contemporary History and Media" (both University of Vienna), his research interests focus on the theoretical and practical examination of the mediation of (contemporary) history as well as a multi-perspective, interdisciplinary view of history in the public sphere.

His dissertation project is dedicated to school radio and school television in Austria and Europe between 1924–1993 from a media-historical perspective. Taking institutional, programmatic, and transnational considerations into account, it shows the expectations of and developments in educational broadcasts for children and young people using the example of Austrian school radio (1932–1984) and school television (1959–1993) on a national and European level.
A special focus of his research and teaching activities concerns the field of tension "democracy and digital revolution". This includes the historical genesis of medial and digital developments, the interaction between media education and society as well as the classification of current developments from the fields of AI etc. on our democratic coexistence.

We welcome our new guest researcher Maximilian Brockhaus from the University of Vienna. He will continue his research on school radio and school television in Austria and Europe between 1924–1993 at the HBI until the end of January 2024.
