Description : European colonial expansion led to Dutch notions of civilised society, or the Dutch's community's flexible and relatively charitable attitudes toward 'others', being scattered (as in the Greek word 'diaspeirein') to the four corners of the earth. In some cases, the exportation of Dutch cultural values to places overseas, like North America, endowed 'Dutchness' with subtle new meanings. But in colonial Indonesia, Dutch political customs and traditions were transformed in the process of migrating to exotic locales. In this book, Frances Gouda examines the ways in which the Netherlands portrayed its unique colonial style to the outside world. Why were citizens of a small and politically insignificant European nation able to represent as natural and normal their dominance over ancient civilizations on islands such as Java and Bali? How did Dutch colonial residents explain the cultural differences between themselves and the supposedly 'primitive' peoples of the Indonesian archipelago? In trying to understand the 'gendering' practices of colonial governance in the Netherlands East Indies, Gouda also explores the interactions of Dutch and Indonesian women with European men. FRANCES GOUDA earned a Ph.D. in history from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1980. She is currently professor of history and gender studies in the Political Science Department of the University of Amsterdam.

Description : From about 1840 onwards, batiks found their way from what was called the Netherlands East Indies, then under Dutch colonial rule, to the Netherlands, where they were kept in private and public collections. Owing to Holland's great interest in Batik, Amsterdam's Tropenmuseum now owns a collection of over 3000 pieces. Many represent the major batik centres that emerged on Java, Madura and Sumatra. Batiks tell the stories of their maker, their wearers and eventual collectors. By studying the history of individual pieces from their creation to their arrival in the Tropenmuseum, we can relate them to their shared history. Batik became a product of intercultural contact in a society where different ethnic groups lived next to or with each other. This book focuses on this communication, on batiks as visual witnesses of cultural encounter within the East but also between the East and the West. This book will appeal to anyone interested in Indonesian arts and textiles. It is a rich source of study for scholars interested in the art of batik and the society in which it developed to its high level of perfection.

Description : The contributors consider the relationship between the roles of objects within their originating culture and as part of a collection kept by the museum, whether in post-colonial Southeast Asia or in Europe. What emerges as key is the point of intersection between lives and cultures which the objects can represent, whether as sites of conflict, of negotiation or of connection.

Description : The Netherlands housed a number of widely-known, envied, and emulated centers of accumulation during the early-modern period. Raw and manufactured goods passed through Dutch port cities, linking the country to global cycles of accumulation and exchange. Its institutions of learning and culture similarly served as internationally famous centers of accumulation that furthered knowledge and cultural production, embodied in the form of books, maps, prints, exhibits, and the like. This collection of essays brings together the Dutch histories of manufacture, commerce, and global exchange along with the histories of knowledge and cultural circulation during the 17th and 18th centuries by anatomizing the multi-faceted concept of accumulation. The book explores the processes that led to the formation of concentrated, often hybrid, sites of material, intellectual, and cultural accumulation in the Netherlands and its overseas stations, as well as the concerns and consequences to which the successes and challenges of accumulation gave rise. It will be of interest to historians of science, technology, culture, and economics. (Series: Low Countries Studies on the Circulation of Natural Knowledge - Vol. 2)

Description : For several decades now, the Dutch Government has been involved in stimulating and facilitating the restoration and conservation of cultural heritage overseas. First primarily related to properties and sites of the former colonial period, but over time increasingly focusing on the broader field of cultural heritage, which is being addressed as part of strategies of socio-economic development and sustainability. During this period attention also has gradually shifted from the establishment of inventories to actual interventions in architectural objects and urban setting, while currently the transmission of knowledge and skills in restoration and conservation is a key element in Dutch government-sponsored projects and programmes. It is important to take stock of recent restoration and conservation projects overseas, which have a significant Dutch involvement either technically or financially, and to establish actual trends. With this overview, issues such as the feasibility of integrated conservation, conservation as a social process, with broad stakeholder involvement, demand driven conservation projects at the local level versus master planning on a regional level, and the importance of capacity building, are to be discussed and evaluated. Next to establishing new, or a change in, directions for professionals in the field, the Dutch Government will gain insight in the viability of current policies guiding support and funding for restoration and conservation activities overseas. This book contains comments and recommendations on the issues mentioned above, supplemented by richly illustrated papers en a diverse range of restoration and conservation projects, ranging from the Caribbean Sea in the West to Yemen and India in the East.
