News on “Heraldica Nova” and the “Coats of Arms in Practice” Project

Lately it has become a little quieter on Heraldica Nova. This was partly due to the effects of the Corona pandemic, which has not left us unaffected as well, but above all to the relocation of the research project “Die Performanz der Wappen” from Münster to Berlin to the Humboldt University, where Torsten Hiltmann was appointed to the Chair of Digital History.
