De Moderne Tijd

De Moderne Tijd

The journal De Moderne Tijd. De Lage Landen, 1780-1940 is the official publication of the Working Group De Moderne Tijd and is the continuation of the journal De Negentiende Eeuw.

Aims and scope

De Moderne Tijd is a unique platform for interdisciplinairy academic research into Dutch culture in its broadest sense: figurative art, architecture, literature, history, music. The journal offers a broad variety of accessibly written scholarly articles that are of interest also for a non-academic readership. By its coverage of the period 1780-1940, it is possible to make visible the longer lines of cultural history, both in development and continuity. With this, the relevance of a past that is already one or two centuries behind us becomes clearer. The journal publishes interdisciplinary thematic issues on a regulat basis. The section 'De Boekzaal’ presents introductions and reviews of recent publications.
