Maartens van Sevenhoven medal awarded to Rozemarijn Moes

At the Gelderse Landdag 2022, the 2022 edition of the annual meeting of Erfgoed Gelderland, the Maartens van Sevenhoven medal was awarded to Posthumus PhD Student Rozemarijn Moes for her research on the historical demography of Guelders from prehistorical times until now. The Maartens van Sevenhoven medal is awarded every second year to persons who have achieved remarkable results in the field of archival research, museums or heritage conservation.

Rozemarijn Moes (1997) is a PhD candidate at Radboud University Nijmegen, specialized in social history, history of the nobility and museum education. Combining her interest in castles and socio-economic history, she is currently working on her PhD project: ‘Kitchen or Capital? Elite women’s role in financial household and estate management in eighteenth-century Guelders’. The project explores estate management by noble women in Guelders, with special attention to accounting skills, life course and estate-wide accounting systems.

The Maartens van Sevenhoven medal takes its name from Jonkheer Anthony (Toon) Henrik Martens (1880-1952), master of the estate of Sevenhoven, who was a Dutch Keeper of the Public Records (rijksarchivaris), publicist and president of the Vereniging Gelre, an association promoting interest in and research on the history of the province of Guelders.

The staff of the N.W. Posthumus Institute congratulates Rozemarijn with this award.
