Curriculum vitae

Sanne Muurling is a social and economic historian with a special focus on early modern Italy and Holland. She studied history at VU University in Amsterdam, as well as Book and Digital Media Studies at Leiden University. In 2011 she obtained her research master degree (cum laude) with a thesis on the social (material) history of everyday life in early modern Amsterdam. 

After working at the International Institute of Social History as a junior researcher for several years, she joined the VICI project Crime and gender 1600-1900: A comparative perspective as a PhD candidate. Her dissertation (defended in 2019) on crime and gender in early modern Bologna focused on the agency of early modern women, both as protagonists in crime (violence in particular) and as litigators before the criminal court, amid a 'culture of constraint'.

Fields of interest
