What does migration do to a society? During the ‘golden’ 17th century, Amsterdam was a genuine migrant city. The percentage of foreigners in the city was actually higher than it currently is. In his inaugural lecture as professor of Early Modern History, Geert Janssen will discuss the impact of migration on the culture of the Dutch Golden Age.
G. H. Janssen, professor of Early Modern History: New Amsterdam (Nieuw Amsterdam).
This event is open to the public.
