Barbora Fischerová joined the team of the Imre Kertész Kolleg as a research associate mid-April 2023. Her main responsibility is the organization of an international conference in cooperation with the Bundeskanzleramt in Berlin. Before joining the team at the Imre Kertész Kolleg, Barbora Fischerová worked for two years as a student assistant at the Historical Institute of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, where she assisted the professor von Puttkamer and his team at the Chair of Eastern European History. During her Master studies in “Geschichte und Politik des 20. Jahrhunderts”, she was admitted to the Honours Programme of the university, and in its context published an article with Jochen Böhler on the subject of paramilitarism and violence in post-1918 Poland and Czechoslovakia. Her master thesis expanded further on this subject, with a focus on violence during the state-forming processes in both countries during the years 1918-1921. Prior to her Master in Jena, she received a binational Bachelor degree in “Deutsch-Französische Studien: Kommunikation und Kooperation über die Grenzen” at the Universität des Saarlandes and the Université de Lorraine, both under the umbrella of the Deutsch-Französische Hochschule.
