Abstract: From the early fifteenth century onward, many scholars have attempted to connect their vernacular language to Old Greek or find similarities between the two. In the Renaissance, Greek was the second language to be learned next to Latin. Hence, the Greek language may have prompted the emancipation of the vernacular languages, which might in turn have stimulated the comparisons between Greek and these vernacular languages. For many European scholars, it was an attractive idea to connect their vernacular to the Greek language, which was generally seen as older and therefore more prestigious than Latin. In my paper, I will put special emphasis on the equations made between Greek and Dutch, which remained as yet understudied. In so doing, I will discuss the different explanations of Greek and Dutch similarity put forward by late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Dutch humanists (such as Hadrianus Junius, Johannes Goropius Becanus, and Abraham Mylius).

Abstract: While literary critics often write about the representation of foreigners on the early modern English stage, alternative dramatic texts such as civic pageants and court masques are often overlooked as means of discussing the political implications of foreigners working in London. This paper will rectify this imbalance by comparing three different types of performance intended for the eyes of James I: John Marston's The Dutch Courtesan, written for the stage in 1604 but performed again at court in 1613; the Dutch Arch, created for The Magnificent Entertainment which celebrated James's delayed accession to the English throne in 1604, and the antimasque in Inigo Jones and Ben Jonson's Masque of Augurs, performed at the opening of Banqueting House in 1622. Although these performances draw different conclusions about the industry of Dutch workers, this paper will show that, both act as a warning to James and the Jacobean court against commercial excess.

"Change and path continuity of Dutch corporatist capitalism (Dutch Corporatist Capitalism Moving Into Liberal Direction: How to Theorize?)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott, Loews Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2020-02-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p150921_index.html>

Abstract: There is much discussion in the varieties of capitalism (VoC) literature whether currently a general move into liberal direction can be identified or that the different political economies are, because of the complementary character of their elements, more or less locked into the paths they have developed on. Other topics of discussion are which forces and mechanisms bring about change and whether the dichotomous typology of only a liberal and a coordinated variety is sufficient for adequately analyzing politico-economic reality and its processes of change. This paper wants to contribute to these discussions by taking recent changes in the Dutch political economy as point of departure. Since varieties of capitalism in the most prominent view of Hall and Soskice (2001) are conceived of as entities the parts of which are complementary the paper will also have to come to terms with change in configurations of complementarities.

Abstract: This paper discusses how family law regulations in the Netherlands, Egypt and Morocco and their interaction might affect power relations between parents in Dutch-Moroccan and Dutch-Egyptian families. Family law gives regulations on for instance children’s first and family names, parental authority, and nationality. In the transnational context rules of private international law open up ways of affecting outcomes of family law regulations, for instance by choice of law or forum. The paper’s main focus is on how these regulations affect parents’ relative power in forming the legal relation with their children. In what ways do family law regulations of the three countries and the interaction between these afford a specific power position to both parents? Are these power positions related to gender, or ethnicity? Have recent law reforms in these three countries affected these positions? How does knowledge of these (changed) regulations affects their outcome?

Abstract: In the context of fiercely debated integration problems and Dutch national identity issues, the Dutch government demanded the construction of a historical canon. In this paper, we show how the past is instrumentalized for national-identity construction by the government. Moreover, we analyse the highly ambivalent attitude of the professional historians, first rejecting the political instrumentalization of the past, followed by an ambiguous embracement of nevertheless doing so. We suggest this ambiguity towards history should be understood as emanating from a specific Dutch national self-image: “decent Dutchness”.
