Water Use and Water Management in Early Modern Europe

Alexander Schunka is Professor of Early Modern History at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute of the Freie Universitat in Berlin. His doctoral dissertation (2004) at the University of Munich addressed religious migrations in the early modern era. He has taught at the universities of Stuttgart (2004-09) and Erfurt (2009-15). His main research interests focus on the religious and cultural history of early modern Europe (Central Europe, Britain, East-Central Europe as well as the Ottoman Empire). More specifically, his research addresses the history of early modern migrations, the history of natural resources, transcultural encounters between the Ottoman world and Central Europe, and intellectual and religious transfers between English and German Protestants in the 17th and 18th centuries, among other topics. Publications include two monographs (a third monograph is currently in print), a number of edited volumes, about 70 articles in journals and edited volumes (mostly in German and English), and about 80 book reviews.
