In the first part of his inaugural lecture, Kees Zandvliet provides clear evidence for cosmopolitan behaviour linked to globalisation in the Dutch delta and surrounding coastal areas in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In the second part, he explains that museums represent and organise history in a largely nineteenth century fashion, employing images with a basis in nationalism, local pride and ethnic classification.
