This essay addresses our recent experience with the teaching of early modern court architecture through a variety of online tools to an audience of doctoral researchers scattered throughout Europe and Turkey.

Training weeks and secondments
The ten doctoral researchers will receive an unique combination of scholarly and curatiorial training, organised in network-wide training weeks and individual secondments.
About our research
Even today, two hundred years after the French Revolution, court residences constitute a significant portion of European built heritage with continuing popular appeal. While the maintenance and conservation of this heritage constitutes both a necessity for and a burden upon contemporary society, it also offers opportunities for European identity building and innovation.
