3. Course contents *

Ever since the Middle Ages, the Low Countries were an highly urbanised society. Presentday Belgium and the Netherlands, however different from one another, are still largely path-dependent upon these medieval roots. The ultimate ambition of this course is to study urbanisation in the Low Countries in a long term and comparative perspective.
