Create Conference: Creativity & the City

This international and interdisciplinary conference on the history of creativity and the city brings together recent research in the fields of history, arts, and digital humanities. In the last decade, scholars in the humanities and social sciences have explored the complex interplay between places and their culture using a variety of methods and approaches. The conference examines the relationship between cultural artefacts (art, books, etc.) and the urban networks and spaces in which they were conceived, (re)produced, distributed, mediated, and consumed in early modern and modern Europe. How such issues can be studied by means of existing and novel (digital) methods, as well as comparative and long-term approaches, is the second major theme of the conference.Keynote speakers will be dr. Ilja Van Damme (Antwerp University) and Scott Weingart (Carnegie Mellon). The provisional program of the conference can be found here.

Registration is now open, and can be found here. The keynotes and the sessions will be held at Flemish Cultural Center De Brakke Grond, Nes 45, 1012 KD Amsterdam.
