Organising a Huizinga masterclass or workshop

Masterclasses and workshops

Each year, the curriculum of the Huizinga Institute is complemented and enriched by several masterclasses and workshops. The Huizinga Institute relies on the input of its members – senior members, ReMa students and PhD candidates – for designing and organising these events. We always welcome proposals and have funding available for selected plans. Proposed activities may take on 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.
