Symposium Hansards in the world, 12 en 13 mei, Amsterdam

Binnenzijde IJsselkogge in conserveringsstation Lelystad

On 12 & 13 May 2022, the symposium Hansards in the World will gather and promote new histories of how the merchants, diplomats, intellectuals, politicians, and craftspeople associated with the Hanse interacted with the wider world in the early modern period. Contributions will explore novel perspectives on and approaches to the late life and afterlife of the Hanse. Our participants consider how our view of the Hanse, its people, and its encounters with the non-Hanseatic world changes if we focus on art, everyday life, or political and intellectual currents in the period of its supposed decline from the sixteenth century onwards.
