On Thursday December 3rd, HOST member Janna Everaert succesfully defended her doctoral thesis called "Power in the metropolis. Political elite formation during the demographic and economic boom phase of Antwerp (ca. 1400-1550)". Due to the well-known circumstances, the public defence took place entirely online, but this did not prevent her from convincing the jury and her promoters, colleagues, friends and family with an excellent presentation and excellent research results. Congratulations doctor Janna Everaert!
