September 25, 2010
The NNI announces its 33rd New Netherland Seminar (formerly the Rensselaers- wijck Seminar), which will focus on “The Restoration of New Netherland, 1673–1674.” It is well known that Stuyvesant surrendered the Dutch colony to the English in 1664. What isn’t as well known is nine years later the Dutch regained control of their former possession almost as easily as it had been lost. The following speakers will offer perspective to this mostly neglected period in New Netherland’s history:
Joyce Goodfriend, “Looking Backward, Looking Forward: The Dutch Restoration of 1673/74 and the Narratives of 17th-Century New York History”; Dennis Maika, “‘We shall bloom and grow like the Cedar on Lebanon’: Dutch Merchants in English New York City, 1664–1673”; Donald G. Shomette, “Raid on America, the Dutch Naval Campaign of 1672–1674”; David Voorhees, “A Provisional Government: The Dutch Administration of Governor Anthony Colve”; andDaniel Richter, “New Context of the Stuarts’ Restoration.” Addition information at www.NNP.org
