#EAIR2019 in Leiden

Our Host

It is with great pleasure that the 41st EAIR Annual Forum 2019 will take place in Leiden, the Netherlands and will be hosted by Leiden University.

Leiden University was founded in 1575 and is one of Europe’s leading international research universities. It has seven faculties in the arts, humanities and sciences, spread over locations in Leiden and The Hague. The University has over 6,700 staff members and 28,130 students. The motto of the University is ‘Praesidium Libertatis’ – Bastion of Freedom.

 

One famous example of this commitment to freedom is the speech delivered by Professor Rudolph Cleveringa in 1940, in which he protested against the threatened dismissal of his Jewish colleagues. Leiden University celebrates this courageous act every year in the form of the Cleveringa lecture in Leiden and similar lectures held throughout the world. It is freedom that unites us even today.

In the four-part film Four Centuries of Freedom Emeritus Professor Willem Otterspeer presents the highlights in Leiden University’s history.

The films are inspired by the brief history that Otterspeer wrote about the University to commemorate its 440th anniversary: Good, Gratifying and Renowned. In the films Otterspeer takes the viewer to special locations in Leiden, including the Academy Building, the Pieterskerk, the University Library, the Hortus Botanicus, Minerva and museums such as Boerhaave National Museum for the History of Science and Medicine and the National Museum of Ethnology.

Scaliger, Jan van Hout, Boerhaave, Thorbecke, Kamerlingh Onnes, Einstein, Huizinga, Cleveringa: many famous scholars appear in the films. What tied them to Leiden University and what links us as a university after all those centuries?

The rich history of the University is also documented in the series of books Groepsportret met Dame (Group Portrait with a Lady) by Willem Otterspeer, Professor of University History. For each century of the University’s history, Otterspeer explains how the University was founded, how it became established in Leiden and how it has developed as an integral part of society. His book entitled The bastion of liberty is a condensed history of the University.

 

The University Library offers access to a great number of archives and studies that are indispensable to anyone who wants to learn more about Leiden University’s history
