TitelGer-mania? Cultural Relations between the Netherlands and the German States in the 18th Century
Cultural Relations between the Netherlands and the German States in the 18th Century
26 and 27 January 2007
Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Enschede

Conference organised by the Werkgroep 18e Eeuw in collaboration with
Research Group Hoog-Nederduitsch (Radboud University Nijmegen)

For cultural cross-border contact in the Dutch-German language area, the 18th century was a seminal period. Before 1700, the Dutch Republic functioned as magasin de l'univers, as the production centre of books and ideas with high export value. At the end of the 18th century, the roles were reversed. The conference
Ger-mania? will investigate the similarities and differences between Dutch and German culture in the course of the long 18th century. Which ideas, books, plays, practices were of common interest, which were neglected? In which way did they embrace each other as part of the same cultural landscape, or exclude each other by mutual stereotyping in terms of 'the other'? Which individuals or groups enabled the intense cultural exchange? The official languages of the conference are English, Dutch, and German.
