Symposium The Political Restoration
New perspectives on the early Kingdom of the Netherlands (1813-1848)

Participation in the symposium is free, but registration is required. You can register by sending an email to Joris Oddens (email@example.com). Please also indicate in your registration if you want to make use of the (vegetarian) lunch. The deadline for registration is Sept. 20.
