Netherlandish Culture of the Sixteenth Century: An Interdisciplinary Conference
CRRS Annual Conference, Toronto, Canada
19–20 October 2012
Organized by Professor Ethan Matt Kavaler (University of Toronto)
and Professor Anne-Laure Van Bruaene (Ghent University)
Whereas much attention has been paid to the Burgundian Low Countries of the fifteenth century and the so-called Golden Age of the seventeenth, the culture of the Netherlands in the century in between has long been neglected. However, the past two decades have witnessed significant research on Netherlandish art, literature, and society of the sixteenth century. The period was famously marked by the twin flashpoints of iconoclasm and revolt, but it also witnessed significant developments in artistic, political, and literary culture.
Keynote addresses will be given by Herman Roodenburg (Head of the Department of Dutch Ethnology at the Meertens Institute and Chair of Historical Anthropology of Europe at the Free University of Amsterdam) and Peter Arnade (Dean, College of Arts and Humanities, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa).
