Inhoud
Institutions shape human lives and human history. Without rules and organizations, societies disintegrate and the results are usually terrifying (think of Iraq or Syria today). One type of institutions that is seen as crucial for the well-being of societies, is civic organisations, with citizenship sitting in the middle. Citizenship has a long history in Europe, where it originated in cities and then shifted to the level of the state after the French Revolution (citoyen). Other civilisations did not use the concept, but did have similar citizenship ‘practices’. This course investigates this very long-term history, focusing on a series of episodes in the institutional history of citizenship and civil society, starting with Europe’s late medieval cities.

Students are allowed to take their exams in Dutch or English. Please discuss your preference with your teacher at the beginning of the course.
 
Please note Only students from the MA History of Politics and Society and the MA Geschiedenis: educatie en communicatie are allowed to register for this course. All other students have to contact the programme coordinator.
