HNR Special events

HNR Special Events deal with networks and the historical domain but don’t quite fit in the HNR Workshop Series or the HNR Conference Series and have therefore received their own label.

Please get in touch at events ät historicalnetworkresearch.org if you are interested in organising a HNR Special Event.
