Dutch Trading Post Heritage Network Symposium

Dutch Trading Post Heritage Network Symposium

A symposium on the annual meeting of the Dutch Trading Post Heritage Network (DTPHN), working with heritage related to the Dutch East India Company (VOC).
Date(s)
Thursday 8 December 2022 13:30–18:00

This symposium is organized on the occasion of the annual meeting of the Dutch Trading Post Heritage Network (DTPHN), which will be held in the Netherlands this year for the first time. The DTPHN is an international network of Asian public and private institutions that work with heritage related to the Dutch East India Company (VOC). This network aims to share knowledge and research on VOC heritage and to cooperate on historical research initiatives. The member institutions are based in India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand.

The symposium will introduce the members of the network and provide reflections on the heritage of the VOC era from their perspectives. Furthermore, the members will discuss the role and importance of this heritage today. We will focus on the historical connections that lie at the foundation of the network. Which insights does it provide for international cultural cooperation? And how could sharing knowledge across different contexts contribute to the restoration of international relations? Various network members will present their current research.  

Finally, there will be an opportunity to meet the network members in De Duif over drinks from 17.00 to 18.00. The Dutch Trading Post Heritage Network Symposium is organised by DutchCulture, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, the National Archives of the Netherlands and the Dutch Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage (KIEN).
