Sas, N.C.F. van


Niek van Sas, born in Wemeldinge, the Netherlands, in 1950. Ph.D. from Utrecht University. Professor of the History of State- and Nation-building in Modern Europe at the University of Amsterdam.

Fellow (1 September 1994 – 30 June 1995)

Within the theme group “The History of Dutch Concepts” I have been co ordinating the study of the concept of ‘fatherland’ and related concepts in Dutch history from the 16th till the 20th century. Work on this volume – one of the first two to appear in what is to become a new series – is now in its final stages.

Apart from the history of concepts I have been doing research for a book which I am writing together with Dr. F. Grijzenhout called “Denkbeeldig vaderland. Kunst en politiek in Nederland rond 1800” (An Imagined Fatherland: Art and Politics in the Netherlands around 1800).
