Due to a reorganisation within the Faculty of Humanities, in 2013 the Amsterdam Centre for the Study of the Golden Age formulated six research themes, connected to current research projects.

Detail Summary
Date 8 April 2014
Time 15:30 - 17:00
Location P.C. Hoofthuis

Over 40 researchers joined these themes, which is an impetus for the development and renewal of research. In short these themes are: Networks of the Republic, Transfer and Transformation, Pretextual Strategies, Cultural Memory, The Republic of Letters and Early Modern News Culture. In the coming ACSGA seminars attention will be given to subjects related to the research themes, to provide a stimulus for the new research collaborations.

In the seminars of February, March and April a pair of speakers will explore specific subjects from different disciplinary points of view. To encourage debate during the seminar, both speakers will provide a short text or a couple of propositions in advance; these will be published on this website. The seminars will take place at the P.C. Hoofthuis.
