German Historical Institute Washington and its Pacific Regional Office in Berkeley
The German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C. (GHI), funded in 1987, promotes transatlantic cooperation in historical studies and related disciplines, organizes academic conferences and lecture events, publishes monographs and collected volumes and awards thesis and postgraduate scholarships. With the Pacific Regional Office (PRO) in Berkeley they seek to enable an intensified dialogue between German historians and their colleagues on the North American west coast. Since 2019, the IRTG has cooperated with the German Historical Institute in Washington D.C. and its branch in Berkeley, the Pacific Regional Office. The IRTG contributes to the opening of the GHI towards Latin America and especially towards Mexico while at the same profiting from the GHI's broad network and resources.
