Workshops & masterclasses
The Huizinga Institute offers several masterclasses and workshops each year. These are usually half day to one day activities that focus on a specific theme. They are aimed at Research Master students and PhD candidates (ca. 10-15 participants per activity).
Masterclasses or workshops may be organised by the students themselves or by senior Huizinga members. We always welcome proposals and have funding available for selected plans.
Proposed activities may take different forms, such as a research seminar with (international) experts or a more practice-oriented workshop in the (work)field, and may be aimed at any subdiscipline in the broad cultural historical field. Student organisers will receive ECTS credits for their activities as organisers.
Some recent examples of Huizinga activities are:
- Masterclass by Benjamin Schmidt: ‘Violent images, violence against images: the visual culture of violence in the in early modern period’ (March 2019)
- Masterclass – Professor Toyin Falola (University of Texas): ‘The Academy and the Idea of Decolonisation’ (December 2018)
- Workshop – Professor Clive Webb (University of Sussex): ‘Voices Unheard. Intersections of Race in Transnational and Postcolonial Research’ (November 2018)
- Masterclass by Yasmin Haskell: Passions for and of Learning in the Early Modern Period (November 2018)
- Workshop ‘Cultural Associations in the Long 19th Century: Agents of Transnational (Ex)change’ (November 2018)
So do you miss anything in Huizinga’s curriculum? Is there a theme that deserves more attention, a skill you want to develop, or a senior researcher that you always wanted to invite? Don’t hesitate and make use of Huizinga’s possibilities. We offer practical assistance, funding, and a national platform in Cultural History.
To submit your proposal, please fill out the application form and send it to coordinator Annelien Krul (firstname.lastname@example.org). She is also available to discuss options and answer any questions. Proposals will be reviewed by the Huizinga Institute’s Programme Team.
