Andreas Fülberth

Andreas Fülberth has been working as a Research Associate at the
Centre for the History and Culture of East Central Europe at the
University of Leipzig (GWZO) and in 2017 and 2018 at the Leibniz
Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe in Leipzig.
Fülberth received a PhD degree in the History of Eastern Europe in Münster in 2005.

From 2004 until 2014 he was a lecturer at the
University of Kiel. His main fields of study are connected to urban
history, especially the history of Riga in this context. In 2014, his
book Riga. Kleine Geschichte der Stadt was published, in which the
political and architectural development of that city is portrayed from
the 12th century to the present. In process is a volume (based on a
conference held in 2016) about the history of heritage protection in
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (especially under Soviet rule).
