Anselm Logghe (ISHA Ghent)
Anselm“Hey there, ISHA people! My name is Anselm Logghe, and apart from being the founder and president of the Belgian section of ISHA Ghent, I’ll be the ISHA President in 2019. My first international event was the ISHA Summer Seminar 2017 in Helsinki, but I enjoyed the ISHA experience so much that I attended almost all the events since then. I even coordinated my own (short) seminar in Ghent about the centenary of the First World War. This year as well, I’ll try to attend as many events as possible, just because I’m sure that we’ll have some great conferences and because this year will definitely be special: it’s the 30th anniversary of ISHA! Together with the whole ISHA team, I’ll do my best and I’ll put a lot of time and effort in the association, to make it as comfortable as possible for all of you who want to be involved into ISHA. I really hope to see you soon, wherever in the world it might be!”


Yordana Nikolova (ISHA Sofia)

YordanaHey, ISHA – People! My name is Yordana Nikolova and I am a MA student of Archeology at the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” in the capital of Bulgaria. I am part of ISHA since the winter of 2016 and have  mostly been  active in my home section. The previous short term I was the secretary and I really like the work. That’s why I decided to continue with it. I am seeing myself more like an internal vice president – more connected with the people and their problems. I expect a  good collaboration with the entire board. Viva ISHA and see you soon ❤

Valentina Cola (ISHA Rome)


Ciao! My name is Valentina and I’m finishing my studies in History, Geography and International Cooperation in Rome. The first seminar I attended was in Zagreb (January 2018) and since then I fell in love with what ISHA is, does and is planning to do in the near future. Within this year ISHA and its people gave me a lot so now it’s time to return the favour by doing the best I can as a Secretary. Hope to see you soon!
