Deadline: Nov 30, 2016

 

 

Several Flemish research centres, universities and art museums
collaboratively organise the third edition of the Summer Course for the
Study of the Arts in Flanders in the summer of 2017. After the success
of the two previous editions with a focus on Jan van Eyck and Peter
Paul Rubens, this edition zooms in on Late Medieval and Early
Renaissance Sculpture. The target group for the course are master and
PhD-students in (art) history and junior curators from all over the
world.

The aim of the Summer Course is to bring to Flanders, annually, a group
of 18 select national and international, highly qualified young
researchers and to present them with an intensive 11-day program of
lectures, discussions, and on-site visits. The theme varies annually
and focuses each year on a different art-historical period. The aim is
to provide the participants with a clear insight into the Flemish art
collections from the period at hand, as well as into the available and
most suited research methods, the state of the research and the
research needs. After the course the students will be ambassadors for
the Flemish arts abroad.

The third edition of the summer course is titled Medieval and
Renaissance Sculpture in the Low Countries and will take place from
June 18 through June 28, 2017. It is coordinated by Museum M – Leuven
and the Flemish Art Collection. Excursions will be made to Leuven,
Mechelen, Bruges, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Maastricht, Aachen,
Liège, Zoutleeuw and Brussels. The language of the Summer Course will
be English.

Candidates have earned an MA or are enrolled in a PhD programme, with a
focus on Late Medieval and Early Renaissance Sculpture. Candidates are
at the start of their professional career.
Thanks to the generous support of the Flemish Government the
participation fee of the Summer Course is now set at €900 per person.
The fee includes the full 11-day programme, 10 overnight hotel stays in
a single-occupancy room, all transportation within the programme, all
entry tickets, 2 receptions, 5 lunches and 5 dinners. Not included in

Four grants in total will be awarded. Thanks to the generous support of
the Samuel H. Kress Foundation’s History of Art Grants Program 2 US

programme fee and round trip flights between Belgium and the US.

The organisers of the Summer Course together with the Flemish
