Stephen Staggs completed his doctoral thesis on Native-Dutch relations in New Netherland. Nicholas Cunigan is completing his thesis on extreme weather and indigenous resistance in the Dutch Atlantic. Both are examining the relationship between Dutch colonists and indigenous peoples in New Netherland, but both utilize different historiographical approaches. Join us to hear more about their individual research, how the topics overlap, and how their differing approaches can offer new insight into the history of New Netherland.
