My research extends the expansive methods and perspectives of Atlantic history to the Dutch colonial experience. Rejecting the essentialism and reductionism of some Dutch history writing, which defines the Dutch and their empire simply as "commercial," I highlight the diversity of the Dutch imperial experience. More specifically, I study Dutch religion and the relationship between the Reformed Church and the Dutch West India Company in seventeenth-century Africa and America. With a Summer Stipend I will expand and revise my book manuscript (previously my dissertation). The new research will enrich my work on Dutch missions and the obstacles that were created by a strong but rigid church. I also plan to study Dutch merchants and the relationship between Calvinism and commerce. I can do both with visits to the New York State Library and Archives in Albany, New York, and the Scheepvaartmuseum and Stadsarchief in Amsterdam.
