Jelten Baguet (Ronse, 1991) studied history at Ghent University where he wrote his MA-thesis on the Imperial Ostend Company. He is currently finalizing his PhD thesis on the urban political elites in sixteenth-century Ghent. This research is taking place at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University, and is funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO). He focusses on the impact of institutional, economic and religious transformations in sixteenth-century Ghent on the composition of the city's political elite, as well as on the political elites' relations with the craft guilds, the state elites and the nobility.
