Research and teaching at the Heisenberg Position explore social, cultural and historical connections of colonial and post-colonial societies between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. Historical processes of transformation and exchange are investigated through the prism of 'connected histories', focussing on south-south connections, especially between South Asia, the Indian Ocean, and South / East Africa.

The movements and flows of goods, people, and ideas are at the centre of our research, particularly, migration movements of individuals from South Asia into the world. Taking a historical perspective coupled with an interdisciplinary approach is ever more important to understand our entangled and and globalized world. Global historical research has become one of the most promising and exciting fields in historical studies today.
