On 24 May 2023, Posthumus alumnus and fellow Stef Espeel was awarded a FWO Research Grant for junior postdoc researchers. Stef Espeel, having obtained his PhD from the University of Antwerp in 2021 with a dissertation entitled “Prices and Crises. The Grain Economy in Fourteenth-Century Flanders”, currently works as a postdoctoral senior researcher with the Department of History of the University of Antwerp.
