Biographical Note

Maarten Van Dijck (Belgium, 1980) obtained his master's degree in early modern cultural history in 2002. His MA thesis dealt with confraternal life in a small rural region in the Duchy of Brabant during the early modern period. Afterwards, he wrote a PhD on the complex relation between social control, urbanisation and behavior changes in Brabantine cities during the late medieval and the early modern period. In the meanwhile he got a training in social and economic history at the N.W. Posthumus Institute in the Netherlands.

He is currently assistant professor in history and theory of the social sciences at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. His teaching includes the theories and methodologies used in historical and social research (see more about this under the heading ‘teaching’).
