Description: Hans-Ulrich Wehler

Wehler played a decisive role in setting up Bielefeld University?s Faculty of History with its specific research profile. Together with his contemporaries, he placed historiography in Germany on a theoretical foundation. The Dean of the Faculty, Angelika Epple, emphasized "Hans-Ulrich Wehler introduced new standards to the discipline. We have lost not only an impressive academic but also a colleague who was taking a strong active interest in the life of the department right up until last Friday."

Mit seinen Standardwerken zur Sozial- und Gesellschaftsgeschichte nimmt Hans-Ulrich Wehler in der scientific community eine herausragende Stellung ein. Sein Renommee hat entscheidend zum internationalen Ruf der Universitдt Bielefeld beigetragen, deren Ehrensenator er seit 2004 war. GroЯe Aufmerksamkeit erregte nicht zuletzt seine seit 1987 erscheinende fьnfbдndige "Deutsche Gesellschaftsgeschichte", die die Zeit von 1700 bis 1990 abdeckt.

With his standard works on social history, Hans-Ulrich Wehler holds an outstanding position in the scientific community.

His five-volume series Deutsche Gesellschaftsgeschichte [German social history], launched in 1987 and now covering the period from 1700 to 1990, continues to attract much attention going far beyond the borders of academia.

Wehler saw his role as a historian. also in light of his own experiences during the National Socialist era. to be that of a critical commentator on conditions in society. As recently as 2013, he criticized the increasing social inequality in Germany in his study Die neue Umverteilung [The new redistribution].
