Jannik Sachweh

Jannik Sachweh joined the Georg Eckert Institute in February 2016 as a research fellow in the MWK Pro Niedersachsen funded project ‘New Knowledge in New Media? Teaching Social Studies and the Challenges of Medial Change and an Increasingly Open Society during the Twentieth Century’. His work investigates how education politics, academia, teaching and textbook publishing processed new knowledge in the Free State of Brunswick during the Weimar Republic, and which new medial formats they used to communicate the content.

Between 2010 and 2016, Jannik Sachweh studied history at the University of Bremen. As part of the project ‘Archaeology in Bremen under the Swastika’, he examined the connections between school, archaeology and politics in the textbook series ‘History Class in the New Spirit’ (Geschichtsunterricht im neuen Geiste). He also worked on the project ‘From the Files to the Stage’ on the bankruptcy of the Nordwolle Company in 1931. In his master’s thesis, Jannik Sachweh studied the biography of the Jewish art historian and archaeologist Helen Rosenau. He was a student assistant at the Bismarck Museum in Bad Kissingen, in the research project ‘Prehistory and the Beginning of the Lutheran Reformation in Bremen (1490–1525)’ at the University of Bremen, and at the Landesarchäologie (State Archaeological Institute) Bremen. He has presented the results of his work in several public lectures.
