Lecture on textile production in the Dutch Empire

On Thursday, 1 February 2018, at 15:30, I will give a seminar at KITLV in Leiden.

The presentation is called “Threads of imperialism: Colonial institutions and women’s work in the textile industry in the Dutch empire”. I will first give a brief outline of my Vidi-research as a whole, but consequently I will focus on the particular case of developments in textile production and its consequences for women’s work in the Dutch Empire.
