The Hanse was a network organization of traders and towns which has developed in northern Europe, and been present in all parts of it, for centuries. As historical and cultural heritage it has in fact not disappeared. It has known several revivals in historiography, and city guides from London to Novgorod point to elements it has left behind in the cityscapes. Conceptually, the Hanse forms an own bridge between the historical and social sciences: in order to analyse how it functioned, a large and ever-expanding toolbox is needed. In this ARTES East Seminar, Dr. Justyna Wubs-Mrozewicz will discuss the Hanse as a transregional and transchronological phenomenon, using our current project on premodern conflict management as an example for approaching it from a new perspective.
