CfP online symposium 1-2 July, 2022: Het Rampjaar in European and Global Perspective

The invasion of the United Provinces by Louis XIV in 1672 (‘Het Rampjaar’, ‘the year of disaster’ in Dutch memory) has long been examined as a crucial event in the political and cultural history of the Netherlands. Yet it also had an impact across Europe and the world, and it threw light on long-term processes which were occurring across the continent and globe. This online symposium will discuss these wider dimensions, examining the significance of 1672 in arenas that stretched beyond the Netherlands. For more information, see:
