It was a great pleasure to welcome so many members of the ELHN network at the hybrid WORCK Conference 2 / ELHN Conference 4 this summer in Vienna. About 150 people have come to the conference site in Vienna while almost 250 people participated online via zoom. Five days were filled with intense discussion in the form of writers workshops, roundtable events, an exhibition vernissage, film screenings and a one-day plenary event, based on a pre-circulated reader, on the study of social inequalities in past and present and the concept of Europe in global history. The conference has shown us how active the network has been over the last two years and how many promising initiates have already grown out of the Working Groups’ activities, despite the difficult conditions of a global pandemic.
