My current research, organised in two major projects, deals with dynamics and change in two perspectives:
The research group "Bewegung als Prinzip – Dynamik und Transformation als politische Impulse im 5. Jh. v.Chr." (Einstein Stiftung), which I conduct with Einstein Visiting Fellow Neville Morley (Bristol), examines conceptual dealings with change and motion in the fifth century BC. A second project, "Thucydides and Political Order Reconsidered: Towards a 21st Century Reading of the History of the Peloponnesian War" (GIF), questions theories of International Relations with regard to Thucydides. In cooperation with Christian Thauer (Hebrew University Jerusalem), I try to establish new interpretations of Thucydides based on the dialogue between Classics and Political Science.
