Eighth meeting of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Network for Medieval Urban History

For the eighth meeting of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Digital Research Network for Medieval Urban History, we have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Lisa Demets (Utrecht University / Ghent University). Dr. Demets is a specialist in medieval (urban) historiography and chronicle traditions, manuscript studies and the political and cultural history of the medieval Low Countries. In her research she often integrates a gendered approach. Lisa defended her Ph.D. thesis on the manuscript variation of the Excellente Cronike van Vlaenderen at Ghent University in 2019. She currently works as a post-doctoral fellow (FWO) on multilingualism and history writing in late medieval Flanders and Brabant and as a postdoc within the Utrecht-based project 'The multilingual dynamics of literary culture in medieval Flanders' (Prof. Bart Besamusca).

Dr. Demets will speak on  'Multilingual Literary Dynamics of Medieval Flanders: The Production and Reception of Manuscripts in Late Medieval Flemish Towns (1200-1500)'.

The digital sessions are free and open to all. Get in touch with the coordinator if you want to join: .

Somewhere beyond the sea is an initiative of the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies at Ghent University and the School of History at Queen Mary University London (Prof. Miri Rubin).
