About Martin Dorn
Martin Dorn is member of the research group Research Group “Entangled Parliamentarisms: Constitutional Practices in Russia, Ukraine, China and Mongolia, 1905–2005,” sponsored by the European Research Council (ERC) at the University of Heidelberg. His research focuses on the transitional period during the immediate aftermath of the First World War and draws particular attention to the Western Ukrainian Peoples Republic, a short-lived state in Central Eastern Europe between 1918 and 1919. In this respect, he traces the transition from an Empire to a National State and seeks to outline the establishment and transformation of representative institutions in a multi-ethnic and heterogeneous borderland region. Prior to his employment at the University of Heidelberg, Martin Dorn studied Geography, History and Eastern European History at the Universities of Bochum and Göttingen, including stays abroad in Moscow (RSUH -Russian State University of Humanities) and Valencia (UV – University of Valencia). His research interests include Ukrainian and Jewish history in the late 19th and early 20th century, as well as the history of Antisemitism and pogroms.
