It is our pleasure to announce an upgrade of our website thanks to friends at the Roosevelt Institute for American Studies and Leiden University who have redesigned the site and now provide us with an operational base. We are grateful to our former sponsor and host, the Toynbee Prize Foundation and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, for their help during the past five years. Please have a look at the new site and share your thoughts.
