Summerschool 2022

»Assembling and Deciding: Processes of Will Formation on Day Trips in the Pre-Modern Era« 



When? 22nd - 26th August 2022

Where? European Hanse Museum Lübeck

Who? Students, graduates, doctoral candidates


In addition to the day journeys of the Hanseatic cities, the Confederation's Tagsatzungen, the Imperial and Imperial Cities' Days, Landtage as well as other forms of political day journeys are put up for joint discussion.

The one-week event consists of two parts: On the first days of the summer school, participants will learn how to work with databases. In the second part, starting in the middle of the week, we turn to qualitative source analysis and comparative evaluation. Participants will first learn about the event and the decision-making process through an introductory lecture. Afterwards, the typical tradition of the corresponding types of assemblies and decision-making processes will be discussed by way of example.
