The Dutch in Global History: New Perspectives and Research (workshop)
Presented by the Scottish Centre for Global History:
The Dutch in the Early Modern World: A History of a Global Power (CUP, 2019) seeks to tell the global history of the inhabitants of the Dutch Republic. To what extent did the authors succeed in their aim?
David Onnekink (University of Utrecht) and Gijs Rommelse (Leicester University) will evaluate this project with the workshop participants. We will learn about exciting new work on the relations between the early modern Low Countries and the British Isles from (graduate) students at the Universities of St Andrews and Dundee.
Esther Meijers (University of Edinburgh) will present her new research project ‘Globalizing Veere’. Peter Blom (Zeeland Archives) will discuss the various ways in which archivists can support this kind of research.
The workshop includes coffee and tea at registration, a sandwich lunch, and a wine and cheese reception at the end.
It is free for participants, however places are limited. In order to reserve your spot, you need to register through Eventbrite:
