Course Description: By the end of the course students have enhanced their understanding of seventeenth-century Dutch cultural history, and of recent research in this field. The founding of the Dutch Republic in the late sixteenth century started a period of extraordinary economic and cultural vigor. This so-called Dutch Golden Age was characterized by a dominant position in world-wide trade and a flowering of the arts and sciences. It witnessed mass migration and religious conflicts, but also remarkable forms of religious tolerance. This course explores the cultural history of the Dutch Republic in the long seventeenth century. It seeks to relate historical developments to their cultural representations in a wide variety of primary sources, such as paintings, prints, illustrations, architecture, pamphlets, plays and memoirs, thus exploring the use of these sources as tools of historical analysis.
