Connected histories and migration history of South Asia, Africa, and the Indian Ocean
Dr Margret Frenz' research focuses on entangled and connected history / histories. These connected histories do not only link global geographical regions, their characteristics, and historical contexts with each other, but they also link cultural spaces and the social practices observed in them. In all her work, Frenz endeavours to complement structural top-down approaches with bottom-up, personal experiences in order to achieve a multi-perspective reconstruction of historical phenomena.
