Moritz Föllmer, Associate Professor in Modern History, has succeeded Sofie Remijsen (since 1 November 2022) as the vicedirector of the Amsterdam School of Historical Studies. As vicedirector, Moritz primarily dedicates his time to the PhD candidates within ASH.

After obtaining his PhD at the Humboldt University Berlin, Moritz Föllmer was Wissenschaftlicher Assistent at the same institution, Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the University of Chicago, and Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds. He joined the University of Amsterdam in September 2011 as Associate Professor in Modern History. 

His works engage with Weimar and Nazi Germany, with an emphasis on subjectivity and individuality, and on individuality and urbanity as dimensions of modernity in the context of twentieth-century (Western) Europe. He has published (inter alia) "Ein Leben wie im Traum": Kultur im Dritten Reich (Munich, C.H. Beck, 2016; translated as Culture in the Third Reich, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020), Individuality and Modernity in Berlin: Self and Society from Weimar to the Wall (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013); and, as co-editor (with Pamela E. Swett), Reshaping Capitalism in Weimar and Nazi Germany (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2022).
