Call for Papers: Women in New Netherland, the 40th Annual Conference of the New Netherland Institute

The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State. The New Netherland Institute would like to use this centenary and our Annual Conference to highlight the role of women in the development of the seventeenth-century Dutch colony of New Netherland and early New York. The conference will convene in Albany, New York at the New York State Museum on the 22nd and 23rd of September 2017. The program committee welcomes paper proposals from a diverse group of scholars, both familiar and unfamiliar, whose research helps us better understand the role of women in not only the political, but the social, legal, and cultural development of New Netherland. Papers that highlight the legacy of New Netherland are also encouraged. Please submit proposals of about 300 words and a one-page CV to by April 1, 2017. All submissions will be acknowledged by email. If you do not receive an acknowledgement, please resubmit or contact Steve McErleane at More information can be found at the New Netherland Institute website.
