Cross-Sectional Assignment: Conceptual and conceptual-historical foundations

The research activities at HAIT require a continuous engagement in all fields with the manifold conceptual and conceptual-historical foundations of a dictatorship and democracy research that is informed by the historical as well as social and cultural sciences. It will be established as a task of all researchers to regularly cover these foundations of HAIT's research agenda in appropriate formats (HAIT workshop and colloquium, closed conference, Summer School). In this way, it is necessary to strengthen understanding for interdisciplinary working methods and research designs, to ensure a high standard of support for junior scientists and to keep pace with innovative developments, especially on an international scale. The aim is to advance the interconnectedness of research fields through shared overarching research questions and to guarantee a theory-driven and methodologically reflective research practice.

In addition, the Institute's publication series Wege der Totalitarismusforschung (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Göttingen) is closely tied to the cross-sectional assignment by publishing annotated editions of out-of-print and wrongfully forgotten "classics" of totalitarianism research.
