Veille – Publication : J. W. Koopmans « Early Modern Media and the News in Europe Perspectives from the Dutch Angle » (Brill, 4 septembre 2018)
During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Dutch Republic was one of the main centers of media in Europe. These media included newspapers, pamphlets, news digests, and engravings. Early Modern Media and the News in Europe brings together fifteen articles dealing with this early news industry in relation to politics and society, written by Joop W. Koopmans in recent decades. They demonstrate the important Dutch position within early modern news networks in Europe. Moreover, they address a variety of related themes, such as the supply of news during wars and disasters, the speed of early modern news reports, the layout of early newspapers and the news value of their advertisements, and censorship of books and news media.
Joop W. Koopmans, Dr. (1990), University of Groningen, is Senior Lecturer of Early Modern History at that university. He has published on early modern Dutch history in a European context, including the Historical Dictionary of the Netherlands.
