My name is Markus Wahl, and I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Kent under the supervision of Professor Ulf Schmidt and Dr. Stefan Goebel.

The working title of my dissertation is ‘Medical Memories and Experiences in Post-War East Germany, 1945-1961’. This thesis aims to expose continuity and break between the political systems regarding medical personnel, medical concepts, stigmatisation, clichés, language, and symbols.

My current research interests are Modern German History, Medical History, Socialist History, Memory Studies as well as broader studies of sexual health in the past and around the world.

I always enjoy a good coffee and a philosophical discussion.
