The historical imagination in nineteenth-century Britain and the Low Countries.


The historical imagination in nineteenth-century Britain and the Low Countries.

Ed. by Hugh Dunthorne and Michael Wintle.



268 pages



National cultivation of culture; v.5


Historians from Britain and the Netherlands have been meeting every few years since 1959, and the 17th meeting of the group informally known as the Anglo-Dutch Historical Society was held in September 2009, at the U. of Sheffield, UK. The theme was the very rich topic announced in the title, and this volume contains 12 papers based on conference presentations, enriched with revisions in response to both general discussions and formal scrutiny. Introductory essays are followed by contributions on the borders of empire in 19th-century British historiography, the discursive construction of the nation in Belgian and Dutch national histories of the romantic period, Dutch national museums for art and history, historical fiction and collective identity, and the past imagined in the visual arts. The editors are affiliated as follows: Hugh Dunthorne (emeritus, history, Swansea U., UK) and Michael Wintle (European history, U. of Amsterdam, The Netherlands).
