Thomas Duve

Managing Director

Thomas is Director of the Department “Historical Regimes of Normativity” at the mpilhlt and Professor of legal history at the Goethe University Frankfurt.

When Thomas is not working on the legal history of the “Iberian Worlds”, and continuously asking himself how to write legal history in a way that is apt for the 21st century, he likes spending time in this birthplace Hamburg, or in Buenos Aires (but he has also made his peace with Frankfurt).

He is also the editor of the blog “Legal History Insights”.
