Privacy Newsletter January 2019
At the Centre for Privacy Studies we have entered 2019 with scholarly energy, ready for new pursuits within groundbreaking research into notions of privacy in early modern Europe.
We are currently looking for additional scholars for our research team. PRIVACY advertises 3-4 fully funded PhD positions within the fields of Architectural History, Church History, Legal History and History as well as two fully funded Postdoc positions within the fields of Church History, Legal History and History and, finally, an assistant professorship in Architectural History. The deadline is 15 April.
A PRIVACY recruitment seminar will take place in Copenhagen 5-6 March 2019. We will give an introduction to PRIVACY and its research programme as well as a presentation of our expectations and requirements for the applications. In our experience, participation in the recruitment seminar strengthens the application decisively.
21-22 March, PRIVACY is hosting the seminar Zones of Privacy in the Early Modern Netherlands. Tirtsah Bernfeld Levie (Zentrum Jüdische Studien Berlin-Brandenburg), Rudolf Dekker (Center for the Study of Egodocuments and History) and Djoeke van Netten (Universiteit van Amsterdam) will join PRIVACY scholars Michaël Green, Peter Thule Kristensen and Natália da Silva Perez in presentations and scholarly discussions of various approaches to privacy in the early modern period in the United Provinces of the Netherlands. During the seminar, we will look into egodocuments (autobiographies, memoirs, diaries, etc.) and their methodology, the Jewish community and the relationship between secrecy and privacy among Dutch seamen.

9-11 April we are hosting a conference on Early Modern Privacy: Notions, Spaces, Implications. We are proud to present as keynote speakers four leading scholars within the Centre’s key fields: Willem Frijhoff (Erasmus University of Rotterdam), Hélène Merlin-Kajman (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3), Mia Korpiola (University of Turku) and Maarten Delbeke (ETH Zurich) as well as a broad array of promising papers on early modern privacy.
It is now possible for listeners to sign up for the conference.
Last but not least, Mette Birkedal Bruun’s article Privacy in Early Modern Christianity and beyond - Traces and Approaches has been published in the Annali dell'Istituto storico italo-germanico in Trento. This is the first presentation of the PRIVACY methodology: its source– and site–based approach as well as its concern partly with the terminology deriving from the Latin privatus; partly with heuristic zones related to self/mind, body, chamber, home/household, community and state/nation, and the negotiations of privacy that take place at the thresholds and overlaps of these zones.
