We are pleased to introduce New Netherland Matters, our new biannual magazine. With the retirement last year of de Nieu Nederlanse Marcurius, our print newsletter of thirty-four years, we aimed to create a full-color publication that brings readers pithy, entertaining articles on the history, legacy, and memory of the seventeenth-century Dutch colony of New Netherland. With some help from our friends, we think we’ve succeeded. So please enjoy a publication that we think nicely demonstrates a few of the many rewarding approaches to the study of New Netherland.
