More information about Natalie Everts

Natalie Everts’ research interests include intercultural contact situations in the early modern era in Asia and Africa. Since 1996, she has published various articles on this theme. In the past she was editor of a source publication on the encounter between Dutch and indigenous Taiwanese on Formosa. Her main research project however is the intercultural community of Elmina (West-Africa) in the time of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. This study, that will result in a monograph, focuses on mixed marriages between Europeans and African women & their Eurafrican descendants, who occupied a range of different stations within the coastal society.
