Paul Blickle

university of Basel

Paul Blickle is a PhD candidate at the LMU Munich. He received his BA (2017) and MA (2020) in history from the University of Heidelberg and spent a year abroad at the University of Durham and Yale University each. Since 2021, Paul has been working as a research assistant to Roland Wenzlhuemer. From September 2022 to September 2023, he is acting-managing editor of the review journal sehepunkte. Paul’s research interests include maritime history, port cities and steam power in the 19th century.

 

Paul’s dissertation investigates the global history of ship’s ballast in the 19th century (on ships, in ports, shipyards and markets). Ballast — commercially useless makeweight — served to stabilise ships on the high seas and thus enabled global connection at sea. At the same time, its absence or presence could have considerable dis:connective effects in that the universal need for ballast disrupted the transfer of goods from ship to shore, illegal ballast-dumping silted harbours and estuaries, and the (non)availability of ballast affected shipping routes and trade-patterns.

kevin ostoyich

spungen foundation

Hailing from Valparaiso University, Kevin Ostoyich has published on German migration, German-American history, historical pedagogy, the Holocaust and the Shanghai Jews. He has been interviewing Holocaust survivors for many years and is frequently invited to speak about the history of the Shanghai Jews around the world.

 

Kevin’s forthcoming volume, The Herero and the Shanghai Jews: Oral History in Genocide and Refugee Studies, will tell individual stories analyse two little-known groups via oral history. The oral-history approach provides a level of intimacy often missing in standard textbook treatments. The book will explore major themes of commonality and divergence among two groups who have experienced genocide and exile at different points in the twentieth century. The goal is to elucidate how victims relate their experiences across generations, the meanings accorded to the refugee experience, perceptions of commemorative activities and how oral history can illuminate the experiences of genocide and forced migration

Lachlan Fleetwood

msca fellow

Lachlan Fleetwood is historian of science, empire, geography and the environment. He completed a PhD at Cambridge and subsequently held fellowships at University College Dublin and Yale. He comes to LMU as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. His work focuses on the uneven imposition of ostensibly global environmental categories by empires in the long nineteenth century. His research also investigates how geographical features like mountains and deserts can serve as scales for new global histories of science, empire and labour. His first book, Science on the Roof of the World: Empire and the Remaking of the Himalaya, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2022.

 

At global dis:connect, Lachlan is completing a project titled Imperial science and the habitability of Central Asia and Mesopotamia, 1815-1914: a history of the societal consequences of changing limits. This history of environmental sciences examines ideas of habitability, uninhabitability and climatic determinism in relation to empire, and it traces their postcolonial legacies in the age of climate crisis.

Callie Wilkinson

msca fellow

Callie Wilkinson studies the dramatic expansion of the British Empire in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and its sociocultural impact at home and abroad. In previous research projects conducted at Cambridge and the University of Warwick, she has examined how the idea of indirect rule was contested within the British East India Company as well as the contemporary debates on the extent to which information about the Company should be disseminated to the public.

 

At global:disconnect, Callie is investigating how Company soldiers’ testimony affected broader discourses about the Company’s military operations in an age before professional war correspondents.
