Call for papers Workshop ‘A peek into the neighbour’s garden’ (University of Antwerp) – deadline abstracts 15 August 2024

The Centre for Urban History (University of Antwerp) and the N.W. Posthumus network Economy and Society of the Pre-Industrial Low Countries in a Comparative Perspective jointly organise the workshop ‘A peek into the neighbours’ garden’ on Friday 15 November 2024.

The intention of this workshop is to provide a forum for work in progress or recently finished work on the Low Countries and to approach these new research developments from a comparative angle.

Everyone who wants to present recent research about the social and economic history of Belgium and the Netherlands is invited to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words before 15 August 2024 via e-mail to Dr Wout Saelens. The decision on the submitted proposals will be communicated to the applicants soon after that deadline. Participants just wanting to attend without presenting are admitted on a first come, first served basis, space permitting.
