Posthumus has a new home...
As of 1 July 2021, the N.W. Posthumus Institute is hosted by the Department of History & Art History of Utrecht University.

Posthumus Institute therefore wishes to express its gratitude to Radboud University for their hospitality and support over the past five years, and especially wants to say thanks to its previous staff members Angelique Janssens, Tim Riswick, and Milou van den Berg for their great work and efforts for the NWP over the past years. For all new contact details, please do visit the new website of the N.W. Posthumus Institute.
... and some new faces, too!
