It is with great pain and heavy hearts that we have to let you know that our project’s coordinator, Prof. Karl Kaser, passed away in April 2022.
Karl Kaser, one of the most prominent and proficient names in the field of Southeastern European History, has been the heart, the brain and the backbone of KEAC-BSR and leaves behind an oeuvre that has inspired and will inspire generations of scholars dealing with the wider Black Sea Region. His last book on Femininities and Masculinities in the Digital Age. Realia and Utopia in the Balkans and South Caucasus was published only last year while the introduction to his 2020-Festschrift gives a glimpse into his multi-faceted work.
It has been a privilege to work with Karl Kaser on knowledge exchange in the Black Sea Region and the entire consortium will miss him dearly. RIP.
