Hansards in the World: Continuity and Discontinuity on the Intellectual, Cultural, and Economic Frontiers of the Early Modern Hanse
The Symposium Hansards in the World: Continuity and Discontinuity on the Intellectual, Cultural, and Economic Frontiers of the Early Modern Hanse gathers and promotes new histories of the Hanse, and how the merchants interacted with the wider world in the early modern period. Contributors explore novel perspectives and approaches on the late life and afterlife of this association. More specifically, the symposium calls on participants to consider how our perspective on the Hanse, its people, and its encounters with the non-Hanseatic world changes if we focus on art, everyday life, or intellectual currents in the period of its supposed decline from the sixteenth century onwards.

Keynote: Dr. Angela Huang (Director of the Research Centre for Hanse and Baltic History at the European Hansemuseum)
Title: Schrödinger’s Hanse? Reflections on the Nature and Functions of the German Hanse in the 16th century.

Closing address: Prof. Thomas Weller (Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg | Leibniz-Institute of European History, Mainz)
Title: Unequal Partners. The Hanse and the Spanish Monarchy, c. 1570–1700.
