NEWS AND EVENTS
Helsinki, 9 June 2020
My new website “Rowing through History” has as main objectives to publicize my academic activities and, above all, to become a platform for historical dissemination. I have always felt enthusiastic about history and I love to talk about it. At some point, I decided to start posting on my personal Facebook account posts about curious or little known themes that I have found during my research. This brief experience has been very gratifying to me. Not only has it been well received by my friends, but it is also turning out to be an excellent and entertaining exercise within my professional field. For all these reasons –and to spare my friends of my historical spam–, I have decided to create adequate own space to this activity… and this is its beginning. So welcome aboard!
