Is Dutch historiography too well-behaved? Does it lack social relevance and public engagement? This symposium takes stock of the partisan traditions in Dutch historiography.
Which forms of engagement were expressed through writing history? Which dissenting and discontented opinions did it voice? By situating the Netherlands within an international context, we aim to initiate a well-founded debate on present and past forms of socially relevant historiography.
With Paul Knevel, Wim Willems, Peter Romijn, Herman Paul, Janna Coomans, Jouke Turpijn and others to be announced
Papers will be presented in Dutch.
