Due to some technical problems with our website, we have not been able to publish the 2020 volume of IJH. This should have been published in September, but we are still working on the technical side.

The good news: the volume is already electronically available in the repository of Leipzig University Library. This link will take you to the complete volume.

The separate articles will be published on this website – hopefully soon. Bear (and stay) with us. The editorial board.
