G’day g’day, My name is Alex and I’m a member of ISHA Berlin/France. After a five month fellowship at l’EHESS in Paris, I am now at the tail end of a joint masters in Global History at Freie Univeristät Berlin and Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and excited to attack Carnival with the ferocity of an Australian drop bear on a tourist who hasn’t rubbed Vegemite behind their ears (you have to do this. Trust me, it’s the only way). I will be working closely with the speaker of the newly(ish) formed PhD Committee, Alexandre Faure (ISHA Paris), to ensure that Carnival continues to be a valuable tool for all members to develop their skills as scholars, editors, translators, and reviewers. I am currently working on new and improved style and editing guides, and should have the next Call for Papers out at the end of the month (so look out for that)! If you have anything you feel is worthy of publication (or you wish to get involved in the wonderful world of academic publishing), let me know! The more the merrier! Viva ISHA!
