Dr. Ned Richardson-Little
I am currently an Associate Research Fellow working on the project “1989 after 1989: The Fall of State-Socialism in a Global Perspective,” at the University of Exeter.
My research projects focus on the politics of human rights in the Eastern Bloc and the history of oil in East Germany.
You can also find me on twitter at @HistoryNed.
If you were curious, the blog’s name is a reference to Erich Kästner’s Notwendige Antwort auf überflüssige Fragen (Necessary answers to superfluous questions).
