Christophe Schellekens earns his PHD
Christophe Schellekens earned his PHD on December 10th at the Department of “History and Civilization” at the European University Institute in Florence. His dissertation focused on the role of the hometown and social background in commercial networks in Early Modern Europe (case of the Florentine merchant community in Antwerp, ca. 1500-1585). We congratulate Christophe on his PHD! Since May 2018, he works as a research associate at the Leibniz Institute for European History (Mainz, Germany) as part of the Horizon 2020 project RETOPEA, which focuses on religious toleration and peace in Europe.
