Symposia 2021-2022

  • Symposium 1: Urban Public Space

The central theme of this international symposium will be urban public space. Starting point will be Street Life in Renaissance Italy, a monograph published in 2020 by Fabrizio Nevola (University of Exeter), in which the author gives a fascinating picture of the use of public space, architecture, soundscapes, etc. in the Italian city. 

This symposium-linked course will include preparation for and participation in a master class by Fabrizio Nevola, followed by an extensive discussion on the applicability of his concepts and research methodologies in other geographical areas. It may also include active participation in the organization of the symposium.

For interested students, two options are available:

  1. For active participation in the full organization of the symposium and in the master class, including the writing of a short paper (2,500 words): 5 ECTS;
  2. For active participation in the master class, including the writing of a short paper (2,500 words): 2 ECTS.

- Aimed at: Research MA students and PhD students.
- Period: May / June 2022
- Location: Groningen (RUG) 
- Course coordinator: prof. dr. S. Corbellini (Groningen) and dr. R. Stein (Leiden).
- Course load: 2 / 5 ECTS.

  • Symposium 2: Accountability

The central theme of this international symposium will be accountability. Accountability is an important ethical, cultural, and administrative concept, both in the Late Middle Ages and today. Until now, scholars rarely asked questions about the development and social effects of administrative procedures, the associated ethics, and the cultural expression of these ethics. The organizers are of the opinion that the Late Middle Ages constitute, at least in Western Europe, an important caesura. At this conference, ten to twelve scholars will discuss medieval concepts of accountability and suitable research methods in a comparative perspective. In the context of this conference (which will take place in Leiden from 23 until 25 June 2022) a workshop will be held.

For interested students, two options are available:

  1. The 5-ECTS-students will engage fully in the organisation of the workshop and actively participate in it. They will also write a short paper (2,500 words) on the basis of a (digital) syllabus that will be discussed in the weeks prior to the workshop.
  2. The 1-ECTS-students will attend the workshop and write a short paper (1,000 words).

- Aimed at: Research MA students and PhD students.
- Period: June 2022. The conference will take place on 23-25 June 2022.
- Location: Leiden (LU) 
- Course coordinator: prof. dr. B. Ramakers (Groningen) and dr. R. Stein (Leiden).
- Course load: 1 / 5 ECTS.
