About ACSEM

The Amsterdam Centre for Studies in Early Modernity brings together an interdisciplinary community of scholars who study the economy, politics and culture of Europe and the world. We focus on art, culture, and history of the Dutch Republic in an international and interdisciplinary context. Tenured professors in History (Geert Janssen), Art History (Frans Grijzenhout) and Dutch Literature (Lia van Gemert, prior to 2020) participate with their staff.

The Amsterdam Centre organises the Object Colloquium Series and publishes a book series in collaboration with Amsterdam University Press. Advancing interdisciplinary studies in early modernity, the Amsterdam Centre offers its members a platform and stimulates contacts between scholars in- and outside the University of Amsterdam.
