Foreign Eyes on the Republic: A conference in Nijmegen

On the 21st and 22nd of February 2019, researchers from both the Netherlands and abroad took part in a conference entitled ‘Foreign Eyes on the Republic: European Perspectives on the Republic and the Dutch in the Long Eighteenth Century’, organised by Alan Moss and myself at Radboud University in Nijmegen. The conference was funded by the Dutch-Belgian Society of Eighteenth-Century Studies and aimed to consider various perspectives of foreigners on the Dutch Republic during the long eighteenth century.

In my own paper, I made a comparison between the topics discussed in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Polish travel accounts of the Dutch Republic. A full description of all papers can be found on the conference’s website.
