CSG Lunch Seminars
The Lunch Seminars are at the heart of the Centre for Urban History at the University of Antwerp. Whereas the aim of these nearly weekly meetings remains constant – a critical and constructive discussion focused on a written text dealing with urban history in the broadest sense –, the content and nature of the texts are characterized by a great variety, including project applications or research drafts, book chapters and articles in progress.

Lunch will be provided so please report your presence before Thursday 19 April to thomas.verbruggen@uantwerpen.be.
