Valeska Huber’s research in global history has always pushed boundaries and stimulated debate while meeting the highest methodological standards. Her dissertation on “Channelling Mobilities” delivered a seminal study of the history of the Middle East and the history of migration. She consistently blends local and global perspectives, which are often needed but seldom developed in global history. Huber established her varied and international academic profile during her studies in London and Cambridge, her doctoral research with Jürgen Osterhammel in Konstanz and research visits to London and Harvard. Since 2017, she has led an Emmy Noether independent junior research group on communication and information dissemination in globally networked regions of Africa and Asia – another important and largely neglected area of research.
