Michiel van Groesen (Leiden): An Ocean of Rumours: The Atlantic World as a Basin for News

Vortrag im Rahmen des Oberseminars der Geschichte der Frühen Neuzeit


The speech examines the circulation of maritime news in the Western hemisphere, and the management of information by Europe's colonial competitors in the seventeenth century. In doing so, it provides a foundation for the exchange of values and ideas that is one of the core interests of early modern Atlantic history, and offers cross-pollination between the burgeoning fields of Atlantic studies and the history of news.
