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.

For ReMa students and PhD candidates: How do I organise a Huizinga masterclass or workshop?
Is there a theme that deserves more attention, a skill you want to develop, or a senior researcher that you’ve always wanted to invite? DO you miss anything in the Huizinga curriculum? Don’t hesitate and make use of the opportunities we offer, whether you are first-year ReMa student or a PhD candidate in your final year. We offer practical assistance, funding, ECTS credits, and a national platform in Cultural History. Not sure how to get started? This checklist might be of use.
If you have something in mind, please contact Huizinga coordinator Annelien Krul (firstname.lastname@example.org). She is happy to discuss options , answer questions, and help filling out the application form. If you don’t need assistance in this phase, you may send the completed application form directly to email@example.com.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Huizinga Institute’s Programme Team, who may either approve, disapprove, or suggest changes before approving. Once a proposal has been approved, the organisers can begin with planning the event. Annelien Krul will assist in the practical organization.
