I still fly, but have become concerned. Modern academic life demands and rewards mobility and international networking. Both are good things by themselves, but could be achieved also with a smaller carbon footprint. I commit myself to first flying less, and to exploring pathways towards carbon-neutral academic life.

I’m a historian, mainly written about the 20th century in northeastern Europe: Finland, Germany, the interwar period, policing, fascism and the Holocaust.
