ANKK Early Career Study Days 2023

Antwerpen, 11‒13 mei

This year, the ANKK Early Career Study Days will take place in Antwerp from 11–13 May and are organised in cooperation with the Rubenianum.

The study days, organised annually by the German Network for Netherlandish Art and Cultural History (ANKK), are a forum for peer-to-peer exchange on research topics in the field of Flemish and Dutch art and cultural history from the Middle Ages to the present. The workshop is aimed at doctoral students and PostDocs as well as students who intend to pursue a doctorate in the field of Netherlandish Art. The open format does not provide a fixed topic but gives the participants the opportunity to present and discuss their current research in a 20-minute presentation in either German or English.

Alongside the participants' presentations on work-in-progress projects, the workshop also includes an introduction to archival research and a guided tour of the depot of the FelixArchief, a tour and introduction to the Rubenianum as well as a visit to the recently reopened Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA). This year’s workshop concludes with an optional visit to the major Vermeer exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam on Saturday, 13th May, with an introduction kindly provided by Gregor Weber, one of the exhibition's curators. Working language will be mainly English.

Abstracts (max. 300 words) in German or English, together with a short curriculum vitae, may be sent to (Madeline Delbé) by March 15th. Participants will be selected and notified by the end of March. ANKK members may be granted a travel allowance. Participants from previous years are warmly invited to reapply.
