Kateřina Králová Back in Regensburg

Honorary Research Associate Returns For A Research Stay in July


PhDr. Kateřina Králová, Ph.D. has just returned to Regensburg as a guest researcher at the Graduate School for the second half of July 2019. Already in January/February and July 2018, she was a Visiting Research Fellow at the Graduate School in Regensburg. We are excited to have her back. 

Králová is Assistant Professor of Russian and East European Studies at the Institute of International Studies as well as Head of the Department of Russian and East European Studies at the Charles University in Prague. Since her time in Regensburg in 2018, she is an Honorary Research Associate of the Graduate School. From 2010 to 2015 she was Vice Dean for International Relations at the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Králová teaches contemporary history. Her research interests include the handling of the Nazi past, memory and oral history in relation to the Holocaust, the Greek Civil War, post-conflict societies and post-war reconstruction in Greece.

Her book on the German occupation in Greece has recently been published in German with the title "Das Vermächtnis der Besatzung. Deutsch-griechische Beziehungen seit 1940". Most recently she co-edited the special issue "Diverse Perspectives on Jewish Life in Southeast Europe: The Holocaust and Beyond" at the Southeast European and Black Sea Studies Journal (2017). During her Fellowship in Regensburg, she will work on a book project on the return of Holocaust survivors to Greece.
