Cultural history and Social history in Early Modern Europe
Anne Goldgar specialises in seventeenth and eighteenth century European cultural and social history, especially of the Netherlands and of Francophone culture across Europe. She is also interested in print culture, the culture of collecting, and the interaction of society, art and science. Her latest book is about the ways in which tulipmania reflected deep anxieties about the transformation of Dutch society in the Golden Age and is entitled Tulipmania: Money, Honor and Knowledge in the Dutch Golden Age (University of Chicago Press, 2007).
