About the blog

Credits: John O’Hare – 2022

My name is Haureh Hussein and I am a doctoral researcher at the International History Department of Trier University in Germany. In this research blog, I collect, connect, summarize and share my experiences, questions and side facts of my dissertation project under the (working) title “Global Entanglements between Māori Iwi and Quaker Whaling Families (1790-1840)”.

In transoceanic voyages, I give a brief overview of the key questions and a short introduction of my research project. My dissertation project is embedded in the larger research project “Family Business: Creating a ‘Maritime Contact Zone’ in the Colonial Anglo-World, 1790-1840“, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

On these links, you can read more about my dissertation project and about my academic background. My supervisor and the project’s principal investigator is PD Dr. Eva Bischoff (Trier University).

  • New Zealand Historical Association
  • The Australian and New Zealand Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
  • The Forum on Early-Modern Empires and Global Interactions (FEEGI)
