It’s funny – in one way my Bournemouth experiences still linger on, in another way I left England a long time ago and the whole EMHIS-team at Hamburg is already knee-deep preparing the next forum coming up at the Hans-Bredow-Institute in November. Four months have already gone by since the last EMHIS Forum at the Centre for Media History at … Continue reading

Notes on a three week visit to Hamburg

Gastwissenschaftler at the Hans Bredow Institut November 2013
