In the German academic context the discipline of ‘History Didactics’ is a fully acknowledged science that investigates the  eld of historical culture and historical identity in present societies. Therefore the Chair of His- tory Didactics (about 1000 students & 10 staff members) is involved not only in teacher education but also in various B.A. and M.A. courses in the  eld of historical culture. It has a strong focus on museum studies, e.g. with the M.A. ‘Mediating Culture’, and on further training courses of the ‘Bavarian Museum Academy’ (Munich). The main research topics of the Chair are, among others, the Europeanisation of national history and museums, the principles of multiperspectivity and controversy in dealing with historical culture and mediating culture in museums and exhibitions.
