Universiteit, wetenschap, het studentenleven, ze worden in de bellettrie van het Nederlandse  taalgebied bepaald niet verwaarloosd. Van Klikspaan tot Marijke Harberts en Kees van der Pijl, van Simon Vestdijk tot Tymen Trolsky en J.J. Voskuil, Willem Frederik Hermans of Joke Hermsen heeft het genre van de campus novel verschillende gedaantes aangenomen, en in veel gevallen rijke literatuur opgeleverd. “Call for papers – Symposium Spiegel of lachspiegel.

Academic Culture of Remembrance, Ghent


A Conference on the triangular relationship between scientific research, academic heritage and university cultures of remembrance. The aim of this two-day conference is to discuss the triangular relationship between scientific research, the opening up of academic heritage and the creation of a culture of remembrance. Two series of questions are at the centre of this symposium. (1) Firstly, we would like to examine, from a historiographical perspective, the relationship between university history, the culture of remembrance in general and university jubilees in particular. (2) Secondly, the place of academic heritage in the creation and communication of (historical) knowledge of universities and scientific practices will be considered. Through a combination of both central themes, the conference aspires to offer some innovative perspectives for writing contemporary university history.
