About the summer course
The aim of the Summer Course is to bring to Flanders, annually, a select group of 18 national and international, highly qualified young researchers. They are presented with an intensive 11-day program of lectures, discussions, and visits related to a specific course theme within Flemish art. This theme varies annually, with a focus each year on a different art-historical period.
The Summer Course provides 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. We expect active participation from the participants, with a discussion following each lecture.
After two successful Summer Courses (The age of van Eyck in context and The age of Rubens in context), we now focus on Late Medieval and Early Renaissance Sculpture in the Low Countries. This Summer Course takes place from June 18 through June 28, 2017. It is coordinated by Museum M in Leuven and the Flemish Art Collection. Excursions will be made to Mechelen, Bruges, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Maastricht, Aachen, Liège, Zoutleeuw and Brussels. The language of the summer course is English.
