Vice-rector for International Affairs and Diversity

Prof. Dr. Angelika Epple

Angelika Epple

Angelika Epple is Vice-Rector for International Affairs and Diversity at Bielefeld University and Professor of History in Bielefeld's Department of History, Philosophy and Theology.

A widely recognised historian of the 19th and 20th century, Epple has held a Chair in Modern History at Bielefeld University since 2008. She has served as Dean in her department and has guided the department to a wide multidisciplinary focus. She acted as vice speaker of the federal government funded project "The Americas as Space of Entanglement(s)".

Epple started her academic career abroad as a student of Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Málaga, Spain, and continued her studies in Germany in History, German Language and Literature, Educational Sciences and Philosophy at the University of Freiburg and the Freie Universität Berlin. After receiving her doctoral degree in Bielefeld she worked as a fellow at the German Historical Institutes in London and Washington, D.C. She received her pro venia legendi at the University of Hamburg. Epple has taught as a guest professor at the Universities of Guadalajara, Mexico, and Bologna, Italy.

Her research focus lies on global and microhistory. Epple is author of four books in German, including 'Das Unternehmen Stollwerck: Eine Mikrogeschichte der Globalisierung (1839-1932)' (The Stollwerck Company: A Microhistory of Globalisation), published by Campus in 2010 and "a parable for globalisation", as the Süddeutsche Zeitung commented. Her most recent book 'Observing the World: Practices of Comparisons' (Campus, 2015), co-authored with Walter Erhart, is a result of her commitment in the Cooperation Group "Practices of Comparisons" at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), marking decisively her strong interest in interdisciplinary subjects and networks.

Epple is married and has two adult daughters.
