Is our national story in crisis? – Dr Henriette Louwerse: Online events
Thu, 21 October 5:45pm
What is the story of the nation we want to tell ourselves and the world? Can we “retain and explain” national heroes and symbols or is it time to embrace a thorough rewriting of history? In this talk Henriette will take the Netherlands as an example of a nation striving and struggling to find a new language to discuss its colonial past and the legacy of slavery.
