Women* in the Humanities

Type of resource

Interview series


Humanities, especially history

This webpage contains a large collection of interviews (as well as a few articles), all on the topic of being a woman* in academia. The interviews and articles aim to look critically at the topic of equal opportunities and address questions such as why women* are still underrepresented in higher ranking positions in academia. They also take a look at everyday life in academia, with the culture of competition being a recurring theme.

The interviewees come from fields in the humanities (with a particular emphasis on history) and are at various stages in their careers — from PhD students to professors and department heads to the president of Humboldt Universität zu Berlin herself.

The interviews are available online in text or video format here.
