- Research project "Letters as loot. Towards a non-standard view on the history of Dutch"
The research-programme Letters as loot. Towards a non-standard view on the history of Dutch, funded by the Netherlandic Scientific Organization, aims at exploring the extraordinary source of so-called sailing letters, which are kept in the National Archives (Kew, UK). These letters, dating from from the second half of the 17th to the early 19th centuries, were confiscated during the wars fought between The Netherlands and England. The five-years-project started 1 September 2008 at the University of Leiden. Research team: Marijke van der Wal (project leader), Judith Nobels, Gijsbert Rutten, Juliette Sandberg and Tanja Simons. Regularly, interesting letters are selected and highlighted in the section Monthly letter on the website.
