Presentation of on-going research into international contacts and inter-cultural relations in the Dutch Caribbean during the second half of the seventeenth century.

Detail Summary
Date 18 November 2011
Time 08:30 - 16:00

Research into early modern Dutch activities in the Atlantic has shown that inter and intra-colonial networks and encounters have done much to shape the Dutch Atlantic world. In the second half of the seventeenth century a lively trade and migration developed in the Caribbean and along the Wild Coast. The late seventeenth century was a period in which the Dutch made the transition from empire building to the building of trading-networks and plantation colonies and offers fertile ground for research into connections and encounters.

In this seminar, several scholars will present their on-going research into international contacts and inter-cultural relations in the Dutch Caribbean during the second half of the seventeenth century.
