Event Description

Organized by Suzie Hermán, Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Art & Archaeology, Princeton University, and Alexander Collin, Ph.D. Candidate, Amsterdam School of Historical Studies, University of Amsterdam

Thursday 12 May & Friday 13 May, 9 AM - 5 PM CET and 3 AM - 11 AM EST

Hansards in the World gathers and promotes new histories of the Hanse, and how merchants, diplomats, intellectuals, politicians, and craftspeople associated with this organization interacted with the wider world in the early modern period. Contributions will explore novel perspectives and approaches on the late life and afterlife of the Hanse. The participants consider how our perspective on the Hanse, its people, and its encounters with the non-Hanseatic world changes if we focus on art, everyday life, or intellectual currents in the period of its supposed decline from the sixteenth century onwards.
