2022-2023: Spring

I am a historian. As I used to say, history for me is not a fortress; it's an airport. From there, you may travel to different topics, different disciplines. Disciplines should be regarded as bridges, not as boundaries. These are not prescriptions: they are retrospective reflections. During my career as a historian, I had a lot of fun; it's still going on.
