ESPRit was formally registered as a research society with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in 2018. The first annual general meeting decided to put in place a paid membership structure to support our activities as a community of scholars, including an annual conference, postgraduate workshops and bursaries, and the publication of our peer-reviewed online Journal of European Periodical Studies (JEPS). Paid-up members are granted a vote at the annual general meetings and discounts at future events. 

Membership fees are as follows:

  • Basic fee: €30 per year
  • Reduced fee: €15 per year (for postgraduate, unaffiliated, and retired members)
  • In addition, Founding Membership is granted to any member who makes an initial donation of €150 or more

Please fill in the form below to register as a member of the Society. In case you are new to ESPRit, we recommend that you also subscribe to our mailing list.
