On Wednesday the 6th of June, prof. Harold Cook will come and give a short talk and then engage in discussion with us at the Huizinga Building. Harold Cook is currently a visiting Fellow at NIAS. For those that are unfamiliar with his work: Cook has published widely on the subjects of global history, science and capitalism, and the history of medicine, especially in the early modern period. His research has been mostly on the 17th century, in recent years focusing on the relationships between commerce, medicine, and science in the Dutch Golden Age. His book Matters of Exchange: Commerce, Medicine, and Science in the Dutch Golden Age (2007) has been very influential, and investigates, among other things, how science and medicine in the Netherlands were tied into the global Dutch commercial network at the time. His most recent book is The Young Descartes: Nobility, Rumor, and War (2018). 

This seminar is organised as part of our COGLOSS seminars, in which the COGLO grad students present their unfinished work and ideas to one another, but people from outside the COGLOSS mailing list are also invited.
