ASH wishes you happy holidays!

Since I started as the Director of ASH in September, I've been continually impressed by the diversity of activities that ASH researchers are involved in, and indeed that we are initiating and driving forward.  Despite the many demands on our time that come from teaching, supervision, and administration in addition to research, so many of you are devoting a great many extra hours to giving papers, engaging in conference and workshop organization, undertaking 'valorization'-related activities of various kinds, as well as writing grant applications.  I'm sure it will be no surprise to anyone how brilliantly ASH is doing in all of these!--just have a look at our recent newsletters for a sampling of our many successes in highly-competitive ERC and NWO competitions, among others, which are just a few of our many tremendous achievements.  We have much to be proud of, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who's played a role in making Historical Studies at the UvA an energetic, stimulating, and friendly place to be doing excellent research.
I wish you all the best for a relaxing holiday season, and look forward to working with you more in the coming year.

The Academy contributes a maximum sum of EUR 6500 a day. A maximum of EUR 3500 is available to organise a related master class for at least 15 PhD candidates. The Academy also makes all the practical arrangements.
