Lisa Dittrich has joined the LMU as Assistant Professor in 2012, after completing her PhD. She is also Member of Board of Project House Europe. Her thesis was a comparative and transnational study of 19th century anticlericalism in France, Spain and Germany and its European dimensions, published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht and awarded with the Max Weber-Prize of the Bavarian Academia of Science. As PhD student she has been associated with the International Research Training Group “Religious Cultures in 19th and 20th century Europa”. Her second book project focuses on marriage and partnership in the two Germanies from 1945 until 1990. The aim is to go beyond social statistical developments and the public and political discourses of love and family studying the everyday life of couples and thereby pursue the hitherto neglected question of the social transformation beyond the political systems.
