2002 marks the 300th anniversary of the death of King-Stadholder William III (1650-1702). During his lifetime William was widely regarded as being one of the leading statesmen of Europe. It is this international context which will form the main focus of the conference. There will be four key topics of discussion: politics, international affairs, intellectual life and the arts. Scholars from England, Scotland, France, Germany, the United States and the Netherlands will participate. Each session is subdivided in two parts to allow the themes to be examined from contrasting perspectives and to encourage international comparison. This will be a fascinating opportunity to revaluate the impact of William III on European politics in general and on Dutch and British society in particular.
