The GEMS Seminars provide the opportunity to members of our research group and other scholars with an interest in the early modern period to meet and discuss current research issues. In the schedule below you will find two categories of these meetings. First there are the Ateliers during which GEMS-members or guests present their research projects, recent publications or ideas for future projects. Who is interested to spotlight his or her current or future research projects during one of these meetings are cordially invited to get in contact with the organization (details below). Secondly we will have three meetings this academic year with colleagues who will introduce to you the work of a famous scholar (or artist) by whom they are inspired in their own scholarly work. The work of at least two important thinkers will be at the fore in the following sessions of Inspired by…: Michelangelo and Rilke (by Nimrod Reitman, on December 13th, 2018), TBA (by Bram Van Oostveldt [TBC] – on March 14th, 2019) and several scholars in a special session with master students (April 18th, 2019).
