Patrick Naaktgeboren (P.)
Patrick Naaktgeboren began working as a PhD candidate for the Department of Foundations and Methods of Law in September 2017. As one of the team members of the VIDI project ‘What’s in a Name? Challenging Early Modern Ideal-Types of Private Partnerships in the Low Countries (17th-18th Centuries)’, his case study focuses on private partnerships in early modern Antwerp. By studying bylaws and notarized private partnership agreements, he strives to broaden our knowledge about early modern corporate structures, while at the same time aiming to establish the extent to which entrepreneurs complied with statutory legislation. Patrick received his MA in medieval and early modern history from Leiden University in 2015. His MA thesis was about the urban environment of late medieval Dordrecht, in which he examined the city government’s environmental policy in relation to infrastructure and sanitation.
