Ingo H. Warnke

Professor of German Linguistics including Interdisciplinary Linguistics

“Moin” – this hearty northern German greeting was new for Ingo Warnke, who as the native of Hesse, came to the University of Bremen in 2010. “I was very taken with the commitment and friendliness that lies behind this greeting,” says the linguist. Following his arrival, he benefited greatly from the ­“Bremen Spirit” and the University’s success in the Excellence Initiative. “We were able to significantly advance our research areas.” Warnke is one of the spokespeople of the humanities research network “Worlds of Contradiction”.


Rebekka von Mallinckrodt

Professor of Early Modern History

Rebekka von Mallinckrodt has been Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Bremen since 2012. In 2015, she was awarded an ERC Grant by the European Research Council for her research. She is both privately and professionally very happy. She says, “I belong to the ‘golf generation’, as Florian Illies put it. We made a comfortable start to life, but then experienced job insecurity.” For her, this came to an end in 2012, and also including her continually moving apartments. She is thankful for that.
