The Hamburg Institute for Social Research is an independent private foundation devoted to scholarship in contemporary history and the social sciences. Through their research projects and at conferences, lectures, and other academic and public events conducted by the Institute, staff members promote intellectual exchange across geographical and disciplinary borders and beyond academia. This goal also shapes the thematic focus of both the Institute’s publishing company, the Hamburger Edition, and its in-house journal, Mittelweg 36.
