Online Conference 1–2 July 2022

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.

Het Rampjaar 350: Origins and Aftermaths of 1672 in European and Global Perspectives

This online symposium will discuss these wider dimensions, examining the significance of 1672 in arenas that stretched beyond the Netherlands.

Proposals are invited for 20 minute papers on themes that might include: Geo-politics (re-calibrations of the balance between the great powers); confessional politics and alliances; state building; the presentation and conceptualisation of power; news and information; the public sphere and popular participation in politics; imperial expansion and rivalry; economics and patterns of trade; memorialisation and artistic representation; and national and other identities. Contributions could discuss how what happened in 1672 in the Netherlands affected internal discussion or policy in other countries; comparison of Dutch experience with that in other places; or how the Rampjaar illustrated processes which were occurring across Europe and beyond.

The convenors of the symposium are Tony Claydon, Charles-Edouard Levillain, and David Onnekink, Suggestions for papers, or other enquiries, should be directed to Professor Tony Claydon, at t.claydon@bangor.ac.uk, by 25 February 2022.
