In addition to our joint research project, the Institute’s historians engage with individual research projects, dealing with political, religious, social, cultural, legal and economic history, in collaboration with other international projects and other research institutes.
ISIG’s research focuses on the concepts of “mediatization” and the “mediality of history”, with particular emphasis on the transnational and interdisciplinary dimensions.
ISIG also promotes and develops historical scientific projects through collaboration with national and international scientific bodies and with the support of public and private external financers.
This section presents the research projects promoted over the course of recent years by the Italo-Germanic Historical Institute. For information about earlier scientific activities refer to the previous ISIG website.
For years the Institute has co-ordinated research and digital cataloguing projects in collaboration with archival institutions in Italy and Austria (Vatican Secret Archives, Trent State Archive, Trent Public Library, Tyrolean Regional Archives). Some of these studies have been published in the series, “Fonti dell'Istituto Storico Italo-Germanico"
