Editorial Team

Comparativ is jointly edited by Matthias Middell (since 1991) and Hannes Siegrist (since 2004). The editors prepare the annual conference of the editorial board and evaluate incoming proposals for thematic issues as well as invite scholars for new and promising themes to be explored in an upcoming issue.

The editorial office is headed by Katja Naumann (since 2004), and she is supported by Patricia Ulbricht as secretary of the editorial board. The editorial office manages the peer-review process and coordinates with the advisory board. It also organizes mutual undertaking between Comparativ and Connections. The latter is an e-journal providing research articles and information about recent publications, academic events, and research initiatives in history, geography, and the various area studies that address border-transcending processes and is also published on behalf of ENIUGH in cooperation with a series of research institutes across Europe.

The editorial office is connected to the ENIUGH headquarters and located at the Centre for Area Studies at Leipzig University.


Editorial Board

The board consists of scholars representing different facets of the editorial strategy of Comparativ as well as helps the editors to select innovative topics and approaches for future issues. An annual editorial conference reviews the submitted proposals and discusses recent developments in the field of transnational, transregional, and global history in order to identify trends not yet covered sufficiently by the international scholarly community of global historians.
