Digital urban medieval history lecture by Prof. Martha Howell (Columbia University)

Friday March 12th 2021 (4pm CET), we welcome Prof. Martha C. Howell (Columbia University New York). Prof. Howell will speak about current research in a paper entitled 'Accounting for Themselves. The Autobiographical Texts of Merchants in Germanic Europe, ca. 1400-1600'.

Martha Howell is not only a dear colleague of the Institute but also one the foremost specialists in the social, economic, legal, and women’s history of northern Europe during the late medieval and early modern centuries. She has published widely on the (Burgundian) Low Countries as well. Some of her best known work includes Commerce before Capitalism (2010) and The Marriage Exchange (1998).

The digital lectures are organized and hosted every fortnight by Somewhere beyond the Sea, the Belgo-British Research Network. To register, get in touch with Stefan.Meysman@UGent.be or DM your email address @MedievalUGent on Twitter.
