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. Full details of the programme are available at https://www.rubenianum.be/nl/activiteit/step-step.

Donatella Gavrilovich has invited Margaret Shewring to co-edit, with Silvia Carandini and Leila Zammar, the 2020 issue of the journal Arti dello Spettacolo / Performing Arts. The issue will be titled Performance and Spectacle in Early Modern Europe and is intended as a tribute to Ronnie Mulryne. Please do consider offering an article. It will be a great way not only to celebrate Ronnie’s contribution to Festival Studies but, of course, to make the cross-disciplinary study of festivals more widely known.
