Annually, the Summer Course brings a select group of eighteen highly qualified young researchers to Flanders. They are offered an intensive eleven-day program of lectures, discussions, and visits related to a specific art historical period of Flemish art. 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 current state of research on the topic.
The seventh edition of the Summer Course will focus on ‘The Age of Rubens’. It will be held from June 18 until June 28, 2023. Excursions will be made to Antwerp, Mechelen, Leuven, Scherpenheuvel, Bruges, Ghent, Liège and Brussels. The language of the Summer Course is English.
Eligible participants hold a master’s degree or are PhD student, junior curator or restorer and they are specialized in art in the age of Rubens. The master’s degree was obtained no more than ten years ago. The deadline for applications is 20 March 2023, 5 p.m. (CET).
More information and a preliminary program is available on the Summer Course website.
