CFP - NACBS/NECBS Panel on Early Modern Anglo-Dutch Unions and Exchanges

Dear Colleagues,

I am seeking a third person to complete a panel for either NACBS (in Denver) or NECBS (in Boston). Depending on the third paper, the panel can go in one of two directions: 1) examining how and why English and Dutch identities and institutions proved to be mutually constitutive in the early modern period; and 2) examining proposals for, or examples of, Anglo-Dutch union and cooperation in literature, politics, religion, etc. Please email me, Catherine Chou, at Thank you!

The three papers examine how popular social and political debates in England and the colonies affected the definition and application of legal principles.
