Bernd Brunner studied in Berlin and Seattle and works at the intersections of cultural history and the history of science. Realizing that his hometown Berlin is not the center of the universe, just a city with a rather unusual past, he has chosen to venture beyond. These days you are more likely to run into him in the streets, libraries, and clubs of Istanbul.
His books have been translated into various languages. Among the many publications he contributed to are Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Die Welt, Zeit Geschichte, Mare, and Cabinet. To contact him, please send an E-mail to bbrunner(at)gmx.net
