I have been closely linked for many years with the Osteuropaische Geschichte seminar in Zurich University,Switzerland, and with Helvetia, and other Swiss research institutions and active individuals. I have been an expert assessor to the Swiss and Austrian Humanities research funding organisations on particular projects. I retain some links with the Hellenic Studies programme at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA.
I review regularly for the Times Literary Supplement, the South Slav Journal and other publications. I am a Research Associate of the Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies, University of Cambridge.
