Mark  Fenemore Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Mark Fenemore

Senior Lecturer in Modern European History

From subcultures in the GDR, Mark Fenemore branched into history of sexuality, education and policing. His latest work takes Berlin seriously as a cold-war hot spot. Whether as smugglers or as film addicts, spies or kidnappers, he celebrates Berliners as everyday cold-war actors. His goal is to write a micro history of this global conflict.
