Research Areas

In her dissertation project Liza Soutschek investigates the tense simultaneity of cooperation and competition in the sciences in the two Germanies during the Cold War. She examines the East/West German dimension of the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA): IIASA was established in 1972 as the first research institute working across the blocs with members from East and West - among them, the US and USSR, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the German Democratic Republic. Her PhD project concentrates on the interactive dynamics of cooperation and competition between the East and West German political and scientific actors at IIASA.
