2009 NEH SEMINAR FOR SCHOOL TEACHERS
THE DUTCH REPUBLIC AND BRITAIN: THE MAKING OF MODERN SOCIETY AND A
EUROPEAN WORLD ECONOMY
London and The Netherlands, July 2009

This five-week National Endowment for the Humanities summer seminar for
school teachers, directed by Dr. Gerard M. Koot, University of
Massachusetts Dartmouth, will investigate how a region of northwest
Europe, centered on the North Sea, acquired the characteristics that
historians have labeled modern. We will study how the economy of the
Dutch Republic rose to preeminence in the new European world economy of
the seventeenth century, how Britain acquired this supremacy in the
eighteenth century, and how it transformed itself to become an
industrial nation. The seminar will meet at the Institute for Historical
Research at the University of London and the Netherlands Institute for
Advanced Studies in Wassenaar (near The Hague) from June 28 to July 31,
2009. NEH will provide a stipend of $3800 for expenses. For an
application and a full explanation of the seminar, go to:

Sue Foley, sfoley-AT-umassd.edu or call 508-999-8301. For further
