Emerging Scholars Round Table
The New Netherland Institute held its second "Emerging Scholars Round Table" on Friday, 19 September 2014 at the offices of the Fort Orange Club in Albany. The purpose of the event was to provide a forum for advanced graduate students, new Ph.D.s, or scholars new to the field to share their research on New Netherland or New Netherland related topics, and receive critical, supportive feedback from each other and established scholars in the field. The four "Emerging Scholars" selected were Megan L. Cherry, Nicholas J. Cunigan, D.L. Norlander, and Peter D. Van Cleave. The "Established Scholars" who offered feedback were Willem Frijhoff, Charles Gehring, Jaap Jacobs, Willem Klooster, Russell Shorto, Janny Venema, and David Voorhees. All those involved thought the event was a great success and planning for subsequent years is currently underway. Funding for the program was provided by the New Netherland Institute and the Netherlands Consulate General in New York.
