Hansards in the World. Continuity and Discontinuity on the Intellectual, Cultural, and Economic Frontiers of the Early Modern Hanse

Thursday 12 & Friday 13 May, 9 AM - 5 PM CET
In-person in Amsterdam, Online on Zoom

Hansards in the World gathers and promotes new histories of the Hanse, and how merchants, diplomats, intellectuals, politicians, and craftspeople associated with the 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. Our 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 political and intellectual currents in the period of its supposed decline from the sixteenth century onwards.
