PhD Writing Retreat at Dominicanenklooster Huissen

From 11-15 December 2023, The Huizinga Institute organises a Writing Retreat, taking place at The Dominicanenklooster in Huissen. During this Writing Retreat, you will have time to write in the relaxing setting of the monastery, meet and exchange experiences with fellow PhD-members, and follow workshops to improve your academic writing skills. The week is guided by Dr Erika Kuijpers (VU)

The Huizinga Institutes can accommodate 10 Huizinga Institute PhD candidates in this retreat.  Participants are offered 4 nights of accommodation in Huissen (basic single rooms, mostly shared bathrooms), including all meals, for an attendance fee of €100,-. After registration, participants receive a payment link.

Registrations open early September (admission in order of registration). Once the course is fully booked, you will be added to the waiting list. Please note that the system doesn’t process registrations in realtime, so your spot is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation e-mail.
