The research school organizes the national curriculum for PhD researchers and Research Master students, and acts as a national platform for the broad, inclusive and dynamic discipline of Cultural History. It includes students and researchers from diverse disciplines, such as history, literature, arts, and science, covering a period from the Middle Ages to present time.

With a yearly inflow of circa 20 PhD members and 50 ReMa students, the Huizinga Institute is the second largest national research school in the humanities. PhD researchers and ReMa-students are invited to initiate masterclasses or other activities. The Huizinga Institute is led by Prof Dr Arnoud Visser. Annelien Krul (MA) is the coordinator.
