PRVOUK

The Institute of the History of Charles University and Archive of Charles University is jointly with the Institute of the History of Medicine and Foreign Languages of the First Faculty of Medicine of Charles University addressee of the Charles University Research Development Schemes (PRVOUK) P 21 – History of University Science and Education. This research programme focuses on the history of the Prague university and other universities over the centuries, with emphasis on their history from the Early Modern Era until the present. University history (history of the institution as a whole and its individual parts, history of particular scientific disciplines, history of the student body, and investigation of the impact of universities on society) is studied in a broad context of social, cultural, and political history. To achieve a comparative perspective in the study of development and role of Central European universities during the period of national, political, and ideological conflicts in the 19th and 20th century, researchers follow also the situation at universities in Leipzig, Krakow, and Vienna, with whose archives the Institute of the History of Charles University and Archive of Charles University has a well-established collaboration.
