With the minor European Urban and Cultural History, you will acquire in-depth knowledge and insights about the history of the medieval, early modern, and modern urbanizing societies of Europe, with a focus on the Netherlands and Amsterdam. The approaches follow the perspectives of the History of Emotions, Cultural, Environmental and Architectural History.
Dive into medieval, early modern and modern history of Europe
What did people’s lives look like during medieval times? Which religions existed and how did people experience religious diversity? How did cities appear in literature and how did people feel about that image? How did people in towns relate to the natural environment like water bodies, parks and the surrounding countryside? These are questions you will address in the minor European Urban and Cultural History.
