Public lecture​​ Zuzanna Hofmanová

At our second HistoGenes plenary meeting on 23-25 September 2021, Zuzana Hofmanová presented the broader aims of our HistoGenes project, also to an interested online audience, and sketched an inspiring perspective of deeper transdisciplinary collaboration.

Visits to excavation sites in the Pannonian Plain east of Lake Neusiedl and to the anthropological laboratories and early medieval collection of the Natural History Museum offered participants new insights into the human remains and cultural heritage of our research area in eastern Austria.


​​HistoGenes Talks at Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften

25.02.2020 | Annual lecture at the Medieval Centre from Patrick J. Geary: Herausforderungen und Gefahren der Integration von Genomdaten in die frühmittelalterliche Geschichte
[Challenges and dangers of integrating genomic data into early medieval history]

This talk explores how the volumes of data generated by geneticists in the 21st century can be integrated into a more nuanced history of the so-called Migration Period without repeating the biases of essentialisation and reductionism that characterised early interpretations of archaeological data in the first half of the 20th century. The talk is held in German.
