Welcome to Anja Rathmann-Lutz

We welcome a new member of staff as part of GRAINES. As of October 2013, Dr Anja Rathmann-Lutz will be joining the Steering Committee on behalf of the Basel team replacing Roberto Zaugg who has recently joined Sciences Po, Paris.

I am a historian and art historian and received my PhD from the University of Hamburg and is currently Assistant Professor (Wissenschaftliche Assistentin) at the Department of History at the University of Basel (Switzerland).


My research concentrates on the cultural history of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, especially on the perception of change in the high Middle Ages, the political use of images and questions of visibility, the history of late medieval cities and questions about temporality and space time relations.
