Summerschool "(Hanse) Diets in Comparison – Political and Ecclesiastical Conventions and Premodern Associative Culture"
- When? 26.-29.08.2019
- Where? Europäisches Hansemusem Lübeck
Diets are fundamental events of the medieval and early modern political landscape to express, communicate and negotiate all kinds of issues. Whether ad-hoc or as a periodic institution, getting together for consultation and collaborative decision making can be found in many different forms, such as imperial diets, urban diets, territorial diets (Land- or Ständetage), Hanse diets, or church councils. The summerschool organized by the Research Center for Hanse and Baltic History in cooperation with the chair for regional history of Schleswig-Holstein at the CAU Kiel, Oliver Auge, brought together researches on different kinds of diets and associative culture to look at the field from a interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.
Five keynote lectures and a public lecture provided the participants with in-depth insights into the different kinds of diets as starting point for a profound comparison. The lectures were held by:
- Prof. Oliver Auge (CAU Kiel)
- Dr. Angela Huang (FGHO Lübeck)
- Dr. Gabriele Annas (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a.M.)
- Prof. Tim Neu (Ruhr-Universität Bochum)
- Prof. Oliver Volckart (The London School of Economics)
- Dr. Jörg Sonntag (TU Dresden)
