Professor Matthew Stibbe

Professor of Modern European History


I was educated at the Universities of Bristol and Sussex, and spent a year as an exchange student at the Humboldt University in Berlin. My first full-time lecturing post was at the University of Wales, Bangor, and I also worked for four and a half years at Liverpool Hope University before joining Sheffield Hallam in 2003. I became a Reader in 2007 and a Professor in 2010. I am a specialist in twentieth-century German and European history, and currently serve on the committee of the German History Society
