Research priorities and publications


  • Socialisation and Identity Construction - The moral self-concept of early National-Socialists in autobiographies.

In this research project, early national-socialists' autobiographies from the year 1934 are being analysed.  It is a qualitative analysis that refers methodically and empirically to the theory of "Dialogicity" (Dialogizität) from the Russian literary scientist Michail Bachtin, taking into consideration other analytical methods from social sciences, from which a method has been developed that makes it possible to reconstruct and analyse the knowledge of the protagonists. The study is designed more general and historical and deals with the question of how moral identity is being constructed in the context of educational ("bildungs-") and socialisational experiences.


  • DFG-funded project on the topic of "education of confidence - confidence in education" ("Vertrauensbildung – Bildungsvertrauen") - methods to reduce insecurities.

In the context of the programme for "scientifical networks", in co-operation with Dr. Sylke Bartman (University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer); Prof. Dr. Melanie Fabel-Lamla (University of Essen); Prof. Dr. Nicole Pfaff (University of Göttingen); Dr. Sandra Tiefel, (Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg), Dr. Maren Zeller (University of Hildesheim), on the topic: Trust as a pedagogical category - a historical-systematical analysis.
