Jacqueline Hylkema is Assistant Professor of Cultural History and Art History at Leiden University College The Hague, Leiden University’s international LAS Honours college.
Hylkema’s research focuses on forgery in 17th and early 18th-century print, and its cultural, social and political implications. She has published widely on this subject, in terms of individual cases as well as the general role and perception of faked texts and images in early modern societies. Her approach is highly interdisciplinary, combining cultural history, history of art and book history. In 2014, she was the guest-curator of Leiden University Library's exhibition Books, Crooks and Readers: The Seduction of Forgery (1600-1800) and she has collaborated on a number of other museum projects, most recently the exhibition Misleiden - Fakes in Art & Science at Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden. She is currently working on a history of forgeries and fakes in the Dutch Republic.
Hylkema’s teaches primarily on the politics of art and print culture from 1600 onwards
and her courses include subjects like the visual representation of religious, cultural and
ethnic diversity in the Dutch Republic and Britain.
Inquiries about graduate supervision, especially on the subject of early modern forgery
and print culture, are welcome.
