L’Institut historique allemand publie sa collection „Pariser Historische Studien“ pour la première fois sous forme hybride avec deux nouveaux volumes chez heiUP

Avec les deux ouvrages de Miriam Régerat-Kobitzsch, sur Marie de Médicis dans l’historiographie européenne du XIXe siècle, et de Christian Wenzel, sur les débats de sécurité pendant les guerres de Religion françaises, l’Institut historique allemand (IHA) publie sa collection „Pariser Historische Studien“ pour la première fois sous forme hybride chez heiUP. Le volume 115, „Cette reine qui fait une si piètre figure“ de Régerat-Kobitzsch, examine la réception mouvementée, au XIXe siècle, de Marie de Médicis, dont l‘image de reine incapable et obsédée par le pouvoir a survécu au temps. La monographie de Wenzel, „Ruine d’estat”, volume 116 de la collection renommée, retrace le large débat sur la sécurité et son influence décisive sur les conflits entre 1557 et 1589, et montre la complexité des concepts de sécurité de l’époque moderne. Avec la publication des Pariser Historische Studien chez heiUP, l’IHA poursuit son objectif de rendre immédiatement et gratuitement accessibles d’excellents travaux dans ses domaines de recherche, d’accroître la visibilité de la collection et de promouvoir de jeunes chercheuses et chercheurs.


New Issue of the heiEDUCATION Journal. Transdisciplinary Studies on Teacher Education

This special issue examines the potential of social media for learning/teaching scenarios with an emphasis on the intersection of language didactic and media pedagogic perspectives in (foreign) language teaching. Going beyond a focus on the uses and misuses of social media in the classroom, the issue is concerned with the competencies that make critical and self-determined users.



In couple relationships, in traffic, in the social media - violence is everywhere. The contributions to the new volume of the event series Studium Generale of the University of Heidelberg look at aggression from very different perspectives. Has humanity become more violent? How can we counter aggression and does it perhaps have positive sides?
