A vital part of the work of the Department of Latin American History is the research carried out by our PhD students, postgraduate students and postdocs. The young researcher's projects are closely tied to our current research priorities for Latin-American history.

In the beginning of 2024, 14 young researchers from Germany and above all Latin America work on postdoc-projects or on their habiliation. Moreover, 24 doctoral students were admitted to our program. They come from Germany, Italy also from seven different Latin American countries (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador and Mexico). They are able to finance their studies through either research assistantships, postdoctoral fellowships from institutions within Germany and abroad or their own professional activities outside of the university.

The program for young reseachers is diverse. The research colloquium on the history of Latin America is a core component. In addition, regular conferences are organised for up-and-coming academics by German Latin-American historians. The history of Latin America is also an integral part of the doctoral program for Latin American Studies at the Dahlem Research School. Our network with numerous partners in Berlin (Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut, Ethnologisches Museum, Deutsches Historisches Museum) and a lot of partners in Latin America offers optimal prerequisites für research activities.
