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 will be granted a vote at the annual general meetings and a discount for the annual conference. 

Membership fees will be 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

A registration form will soon be made available on this page. In the meantime, anyone who is interested in participating in our network can join our mailing list.
