We are pleased to announce that our network has started to support research mobility for our PhD students. Basel, St Andrews and Sciences Po are now linked through the work of their doctoral researchers and more projects will soon enjoy the variety of our institutions.
- The Centre d’Histoire de Sciences Po has just welcomed Ousmane Seydi from Basel. Ousmane will be staying until January 2015 under the supervision of Roberto Zaugg. His work examines the circulation of scientific knowledge in Senegal.
- From September to December 2014, the Basel Graduate School of History welcomed Jordan Girardin from St Andrews. Jordan’s thesis is an entangled analysis of the Alps between 1750 and 1830, focusing on travel and transnational routes. This semester has allowed him to broaden his historiographical knowledge, to take part in the department’s conferences and seminars, and to travel through Switzerland and France to collect primary sources. Jordan is currently finishing up his research in Alpine archives and will present his work in Basel next week during the Themennachmittag “Vorstellungen von Naturräumen”.
