Date: Wednesday 14 September
Location: SPUI25, Spui 25-27, 1012 XM Amsterdam
Vantilt Publishers, Spui25, and Lotte Jensen cordially invite you to attend the book presentation of Vieren van vrede. Het ontstaan van de Nederlandse identiteit, 1648-1815 by Lotte Jensen. The presentation will take place on Wednesday 14 September 2016, 17:00-18:30, in SPUI25 (Spui 25-27, 1012 XM Amsterdam).
In the course of history we have seen many peace conferences and peace organizations. The Nobel Peace Price was created to honour people who have strived for peace in the most exceptional ways. However, cynics have long since argued that a complete state of peace is something unobtainable. On the contrary, every hard-fought peace is in fact the beginning of a new war. Who is right in this regard, peace idealists or cynics?
Beatrice de Graaf, Maarten Prak and Ad van Liempt, three experts on Europe’s political history, will discuss these and more questions on Wednesday 14 September. During this occasion, Lotte Jensen will present her new book. Vieren van vrede explains that peace accords helped shape national identity in the early modern period: dreams about future prosperity go hand in hand with discussions on an ideal Dutch society.
All activities of SPUI25 are free of charge. You can register for this event by contacting SPUI25 by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (020 525 8142).
