23-24 November - International Symposium: Rethinking the VOC

Recently academic programs increasingly focus on the negative sides of VOC history. During this symposium experts will give an analysis of their new insights. What is the current state of research? How can this be helped forward by a non-western approach? And where will it go – or does it need to go – in the future?


National Archives, Leiden University and Leiden Asia Year invite you to join them at this excitatory symposium to attend a variety of lectures, discussions and a round table on various subjects seen from new perspectives.


Because of the digitisation of the VOC Archives, the National Archives of the Netherlands are showcasing the Dutch East India Company in 2017.During the symposium, you are welcome to visit their exhibition on the VOC too.
