Specific Qualification as Participant of the IRTG

Eva Bischoff is Assistant Professor for International History. Her general research interests include the history of British, German, and US colonialism, postcolonial studies, history of criminology and psychiatry, and gender/queer studies. In her dissertation, which is located at the intersections between colonial history, gender studies and the history of criminology, she reconstructs the entanglement and interdependencies between colonial and metropolitan discourses on masculinity, race, and class. Her work is strongly connected to interdisciplinary as well as international research groups. As a doctoral student, she was a member of the International Research Training Group “Postcolonial Studies”.

Today, as a postdoctoral researcher, she is involved in the interdisciplinary research network “Postcolonial Germany and Britain” and is an associated member of CAIA, an interdisciplinary research centre on “Colonialism and Its Aftermath” at the University of Tasmania. Moreover, Eva Bischoff has substantial teaching experience. She taught British and American History as well as Postcolonial Studies on the B.A. and on the M.A. levels before coming to Trier where she focusses on colonial and global history.
