21-25 June 2015: Summer School Things that Matter 2
Johan Huizinga: Cultural History and Material Culture
2015 will see the 70th anniversary of Johan Huizinga’s death and the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Huizinga Institute. In order to mark these anniversaries, the Department of History of the University of Groningen will organize its annual international Summer School ‘Things that Matter’ in close cooperation with the Huizinga Institute. The opening event of the Summer School will be dedicated to Huizinga’s legacy in the contemporary academic world. Accordingly, the Summer School will encourage participants to enter into a ‘dialogue’ with Huizinga’s thoughts by embarking on a close reading of his work and by considering how his ideas have resonated with new developments in the field.
21-26 Juni 2015, University of Groningen.
