UCLA Van Tilburg Lecture in Dutch Studies

The UCLA College of Letters and Science invites you to attend the annual  Johannes Van Tilburg Lecture in Dutch Studies  featuring  Els Stronks, Professor of Early Modern Dutch Literature and Culture, Utrecht University

International Bestsellers of the Dutch Golden Age

Whereas Dutch painters Vermeer and Rembrandt of the Dutch Golden Age are internationally recognized, Dutch writers from the same period have remained virtually unknown outside the Netherlands. Their works might have been more widely acclaimed had they been translated into any of the major languages, just as contemporary author Stieg Larsson’s novels became a global literary phenomenon through translation from their original Swedish. Did the Dutch, who liked to think of themselves as global traders, ever really try to find a marketing strategy for exporting early modern Dutch literature to the world?
