HOW GOLDEN FOR WOMEN WAS THE DUTCH GOLDEN AGE?
Join NNI Director Deborah Hamer & NYU Professor Susanah Romney for this virtual talk sponsored by the New Amsterdam History Center & the New-York Historical Society.
The discussion will explore the social role of women in New Netherland, Brazil, and other places in the expanding Dutch world of the seventeenth century. What pathways and options were available to women in the Dutch empire? What part did social class play in their choices and strategies? How did marriage and local marriage regulations affect the ability of wives and unmarried females to survive and to flourish, or not, in colonial imperial societies? How influential were women in building colonial societies? And how closely, or not, did those societies resemble a Dutch paradigm?

ANNUAL EVENTS OF THE NEW NETHERLAND INSTITUTE
The NNI Annual Conference, originally named the Rensselaerswijck Seminar, has showcased research into the early history and culture of the Dutch in America.
Held in conjunction with the Annual Conference, the New Netherland Dinner is an evening to share food & fun and hear a speaker like Chip Reynolds, skipper of the Half Moon (pictured.)
From April to June of 2019, NNI hosted a series of elevent lectures on all things New Netherland, each at a different venue in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and the Capital Region. COVID restrictions prevented us from continuing the series in 2020-2021. We hope to continue this series, albeit virtually, in 2022
