|When:||Mo 11-06-2018 16:00 - 18:00|
For the last seminar of the second semester of this CHS season, we will be joined by Hanno Brand (RUG). Professor Brand will be speaking about Frisian Skippers in Eighteenth-century English Prize Papers. Prize papers are a rich source of information containing information about the origin, route and planned destination of seized ships, as well as crew members’ interrogation accounts.
Brand is professor by special appointment at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen in Fryslân. His research focuses on networks of trade in pre-industrial Europe. Brand is especially interested in the role of Fryslân in these trade networks.
This last seminar will be concluded with drinks and a book harvest!
