The Williamite Universe is an international network, established in 2002, the tercentenary of the death of the King Stadholder William III. Its purpose is to bring together scholars interested in and working on international politics and culture between 1650 and 1750. Aimed primarily at historians, the website also includes related disciplines, such as art history, political theory, philosophy, theology, economics and international relations. The network organizes frequent conferences and hosts a book series. Anyone interested is invited to register.


On 1 and 2 July 2022 a new conference will take place:

Het Rampjaar 350: The Dutch ‘Year of Disaster’

1672 in European and Global Perspectives
