Cities in Revolt: The Dutch-American Atlantic, ca. 1650-1815.

Deutsches Haus, Columbia University, 420 W. 116th Street

November 13, 2009 – November 14, 2009

"Cities in Revolt," a two-day conference at Columbia University, is a forum for new scholarship on the intersections between the Dutch and Anglo-American Atlantic worlds in the long eighteenth century.  The main conference goals are 1) to create a scholarly discussion about Dutch-American interconnections in the eighteenth century and 2) help the general public gain a fuller picture of an understudied period in Dutch-American relations.  Most of the conference will consist of panels of three presenters each, a comment, and time for discussion at the end.
