Magnus Altschäfl


I’m a grad student at the department of history at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. For the academic year 2016/17 I am a visiting student researcher at the department of history at the University of California, Berkeley.

Research Interests:

I am currently working on my masters thesis, supervised by Margit Szöllösi-Janze. Still lacking a working title, my thesis will examine the transfer and circulation of knowledge within a Bay Area based group of leftist medical professionals in the first half of the 20th century. Other research interests include the history of science and the history of photography.
