My research is mainly focused on political education (literal translation of the German term “politische Bildung”; other designations: citizenship education, civic education).
Main areas of research are
- Theoretical bases of political education, in particular
- Foundations of theory of political education in epistemology and theory of education;
- Subject specific didactics and pedagogy of teaching citizenship/political education;
- Interdisciplinary approaches in teaching social sciences at schools.
- History of political education in Germany
- Media, textbook and qualitative empirical research.
