VISUALIZING AND ASSERTING POWER IN NETHERLANDISH JOYOUS ENTRIES
On 17th April 2020, the 385th anniversary of the Joyous Entry of Cardinal-Infant Ferdinand of Spain into Antwerp, which had taken place on this day in 1635. This conference had originally been planned to mark the anniversary. This event, which includes a number of SEFR members among the speakers, was originally scheduled to take place in April 2020 at the Rubenianum in Antwerp and has been postponed. Now, due to the dynamic situation of the Covid-19-pandemic, the two-day conference will take place in a digital format. DATE: 10 and 11 December 2020, 15:30 - 18:40
This event brings together the leading scholars of this field of art and ritual history whose contributions have made it possible to gain a deeper understanding of the early modern festivities held in the Netherlands to assert and negotiate power between the ruler and the ruled. Together with (young) colleagues and specialists from adjacent disciplines, we aim to discuss the challenges and opportunities of studying such significant moments in history.
