Medieval Memoria Research


In memoriam Jan Kuys

We regret to announce that after a brief illness our Nijmegen colleague, the well-known medieval historian Dr Jan Kuys (or Kuijs), passed away on 26 April 2018 aged 66. For several years he was an active member of the ‘Overleg Memoria’ (Discussion Group Memoria), during which PhD students and senior researchers and experts in the field of medieval commemoration met to discuss each others’ research projects and offer helpful suggestions. Jan published widely and also attended and contributed regularly to the Symposia on Memoria Research with our German colleagues (Deutsch-Niederländische Gespräche). He was always willing to offer advice to anyone who called on him with questions. Jan will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the Overleg Memoria,

Truus van Bueren
