Call for Papers: Foreign Eyes on the Republic (deadline: 14 dec.)

Met de Alexander P. Raat Congressubsidie 2018 van de Werkgroep 18e Eeuw wordt op 21 en 22 februari 2019 een congres georganiseerd rond de beeldvorming van de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden onder de titel: Foreign Eyes on the Republic. European Perspectives on the Republic and the Dutch in the Long Eighteenth Century. 

Uit de call for papers: “This conference would like to broaden the scope of imagological research in three distinct ways: 1) by combining and juxtaposing ego-documental, historical, arthistorical and literary sources; 2) by comparing relatively well-known and lesser-known European views; 3) by discussing the opinions of both foreign guests (travellers) and the reactions of their hosts (‘travelees’). The historical demarcation should be understood in a broad sense: the conference welcomes papers on the diachronic development of stereotypes, as well as single historical events which influenced European opinions.”
