Organised between the Durham University History Department and the Institute for Medieval and Early Modern History, this session includes short talks by the editors and the translator of the book, followed by a Q&A:

  • Anton van der Lem (Leiden), 'The Historian as Public Intellectual: Johan Huizinga, 1872-1945'
