Thomas Lindner

Thomas Lindner is a historian, Predoctoral Fellow at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Development and member of the International Max-Planck Graduate School Moral Economies of Modern Societies.

His research interests are the Global 1920s, Cosmopolitanism, Urbanism, and Transnational History in general. His Ph.D. project analyses transnational networks of anti-imperialism in the 1920s by focusing on Mexico City as urban hub of diverse anti-imperialist actors. The project combines "global intellectual history“ with transnational social movement studies and attempts to link together the local urban context and the global interconnections of anti-imperialism.
