MemberFrancesco Iacono

I joined the Department of History, Culture and Civilization of the University of Bologna after winning the “Montalcini” program against the so-called “brain-drain” and after a long period of research at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge (first with a fellowship from the Institute for Aegean Prehistory and then with a Marie Slodowska Curie IF). Previously, I had earned a Ph.D. at the Institute of Archeology, University College London, funded by the AHRC and the British School at Athens. My research interests range from prehistory and archeology of the Mediterranean (with particular attention to the Bronze Age), to social theory (in particular Marxist archeology) to the use of applications based on graph-theory, to cultural heritage studies (with specific attention to the so-called “difficult heritage”), and, finally, the history of the archaeological thought.

MemberMartin Munke

I am a historian interested in East-Central and Eastern European History. My focus lies on the relations and entanglements of these areas with the German lands, especially in the Age of Enlightenment and the ‘Age of Extremes’. Another focus of my work are digital methods and the concepts of Open Science and Citicen Science in the field of historical research. After several years as research assistant at Chemnitz University of Technology (Institute of European History, Institute of European Studies), I work as head of the divison “Saxonica” (since 2016) and vice head of the department “Manuscripts, Rare Prints, and Saxony” (since 2017) at Saxon State and University Library (SLUB), Dresden.
