Dr. Andreas Weiß studied modern and contemporary history (e.g. Berlin‘s urban history), sociology (urban sociology) and history and society of Southeast Asia at the Humboldt University, Berlin, and the Universidad de Cantabria, Spain. His dissertation dealt with debates on modernity and decadence in turn-of-the-century Great Britain and Germany. His research focus is on the „Cold War“-period and European attempts to overcome the East-West-confrontation. He published on a variety of topics. After a time at the GEI Brunswick and a fellowship at UCL he taught different classes in Berlin, for example at the CIEE Berlin (Berlin: Capital of the 20th Century) and at the Humboldt University in Berlin.
