Research Field
Economic History of Western World, History of Industrialization and Urbanization in Germany
Research Theme
My former subject was the proto-industrialization in Eastern Germany. After that I studied on the transformation from proto-industrialization to industrialization in Ravensberg, North-western Germany positively, inspired by the recent studies on the regional industrialization. At present I am interested in the urbanization as a result of industrialization. After I surveyed the studies of modern urban history in Germany comprehensively, I concentrated my attention on three problems of the urban history, namely the urban transportation, the annexation and the mayoralty. While I sketched the general characteristics of these problems in Germany, I chose Frankfurt am Main as the subject of my case study, and investigate the history of this city intensively with the primary sources.
