On January 12 2023 the workshop The Quest for a Partner in the Past and Today. Researching Data from Matchmaking Media and Agencies will take place at Radboud University Nijmegen.
The aim of this workshop is to bring scholars from various fields in the humanities and social sciences together that study patterns and shifts in human mating behavior using a broad range of historical and contemporary sources, such as matrimonial and contact advertisements from (historical) newspapers and magazines, as well as dating and marriage agencies, sites and apps.
