Centre for Urban History (CSG) at University of Antwerp

Established in 2003, the Centre for Urban History at the University of Antwerp (CSG) examines urbanised societies from the Middle Ages to the present.

Situated in the heart of the old, urbanized core of the Southern Netherlands and later Belgium, the Centre for Urban History analyses patterns of urbanization and what urban living does to people and the broader environment.
