9 March 2023: John’s new job in Berlin!



John Woitkowitz has secured a post as a Research Associate in the project “IN_CONTEXT: Colonial Histories and Digital Collections”, based at the State Library Berlin, 2023-25.

John is working on a two-year project to locate collections related to colonial histories and to develop a framework for digitisation and the development of a virtual research environment.  Further information about “IN_CONTEXT” can be found here.


We are delighted by this great news for John. Using the skills and expertise he developed in his work for Arctic Cultures, John is making connections to new collections and colonial histories.  This is another wonderful outcome for the Arctic Cultures project.  Many congratulations to John from all of the Arctic Cultures team, past and present!
