New Board of Directors

Prof. Dr. Markus Koller and Dr. Kristin Platt re-elected, Prof. Dr. Cornelia Jöchner, Junior-Prof. Dr. Verena Krebs and Prof. Dr. Thomas Feldhoff newly elected

On December 20, 2018, the ZMS had invited all members to this year's general meeting. As scheduled, elections to the board of directors were on the agenda at this year's general meeting. A personnel change in the directorship had become necessary as three previous members have recently taken new positions: Jun.-Prof. Dr. Manuel Borutta was appointed Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at the University of Konstanz, Prof. Dr.. Christof Berns accepted a call to the Institute for Archeology and Cultural History of the Ancient Mediterranean at the University of Hamburg, and Dr. Anja Zorob began working as a DAAD long-term lecturer at Birzeit University in Ramallah.

As a result of the election, Prof. Dr. Markus Koller (History of the Ottoman Empire and Turkey) and Dr. Kristin Platt (Institute for Diaspora and Genocide Research) have been re-elected as members of the board of directors, while Prof. Dr. Cornelia Jöchner (Early Modern Art), Jun-Prof. Dr. Verena Krebs (Medieval Cultural Realms and their Entanglements), and Prof. Dr. med. Thomas Feldhoff (Department of Geography, Human Geography).
were newly elected to the board! The entire team of the ZMS is looking forward to working with the new board! Welcome!
