Thank you Bern !

On 1 August 2019, our research group will move to the History Department of the University of Zurich.

We wish to thank the University of Bern and our colleagues for these months of intense and fruitful work: your support in preparing and launching our project has been of invaluable importance! In particular, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Prof Christian Windler, who has welcomed our research group at the Section of Modern History and who, on various occasions, has offered us his time and his advice. Our Bern period was rather short, but it will constitute the basis for future cooperation opportunities.
