HSSuisse 2023

HSSuisse was founded in 2019 to connect early career historians of science in Switzerland. The annual workshops provide an opportunity to exchange project ideas, present preliminary results, and discuss methods and historiographical trends. We welcome scholars of all backgrounds and strive to create an informal, respectful, and constructive environment. HSSuisse 2023 is organized by Felix Lüttge and hosted by the University of Basel’s Department of Media Studies at eikones – Center for the Theory and History of the Image.
