New Amsterdam in the Dutch Atlantic
Monday 6th of November 2017 6:30pm - 8:00pm
On Monday November 6, The New Amsterdam History Center presents an interesting lecture about New Amsterdam in the Dutch Atlantic. A Dialogue About Trade and Entrepreneurship on the 17th Century World Stage with historians Wim Klooster and Dennis J. Maika.
They will exchange ideas and perceptions on such topics as the operation of both state-sponsored commercial monopolies and private entrepreneurship, the practical aspects of arranging trade, cooperation as well as competition between representatives of European empires, the impact of “sustained warfare” in the seventeenth century, and finally, the Dutch commercial legacy in both the Atlantic World and New York.
A Q&A will follow.
More information will follow soon.
