The Heart of Capitalism, Amsterdam from 1600-present (VU Amsterdam Summer School)

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Certificate / Diploma Summer course Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Capitalism does have a heart, at least in an economic and geographical sense. From 1600 onwards, for a long time that heart was Amsterdam. Amsterdam still is a major player in the capitalist world.
Course description The framework of this course is the new scholarship on capitalism and current debates about “global” and “creative” cities. Since the development of capitalism is now considered part of a wider web of social relations, power structures, belief systems and cultural practices, we cover several centuries and many aspects of history: social, economic, business, political, cultural and religious history as well as the history of emotions. As a long-established centre of capitalism, Amsterdam is the perfect place to study this innovative approach in situ. And to look in greater depth at the relationship between the development of capitalism and the urban environment, We will address questions such as how the ups and downs of Amsterdam as a hotbed of capitalism affected the spatial, social and cultural development of the city and how the urban ambience influenced the role of Amsterdam in the capitalist world, especially in terms of city planning, social inequality, the role of cultural industries In doing so, we will engage with ongoing discussions among historians, social scientists and policy makers about 'global' and 'creative' cities.
