400 Years Since Plymouth
January 4 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Van de Bilt will participate in a special session titled “400 Years Since Plymouth.” It is intended to reflect on the 400th anniversary of settlement at Plymouth, not as a celebration, but as a reflection emphasizing the international context and how the events should be understood today.
The “Pilgrim” narrative can best be understood through a series of contexts that includes Leiden, the Netherlands; Plymouth, England; the world of what would become Massachusetts in 1620; and the larger colonization frame of New England.
