Which call are you planning to apply for?


What are your research interests?

I am a comparative, transnational historian of the First World War.

I am interested in the social experience of, and responses to, conflicts in the twentieth century.

What is your offer?

I am a transnational and comparative historian of Europe, focusing on the social experience of military conflicts. I am also interested in the memory and commemoration of military conflicts.

Who would you like to collaborate with?

Post-conflict and peace-building experts, urban planners, architects, sociologists, political scientists and urban studies specialists.
