The Problem of Writing Histories of Colonialism

Illustration for an academic journal

The BMGN - Low Countries Historical Review invited illustrators to make illustrations for their 50th anniversary journal. I provided visuals for two articles: one about Dutch colonialism and neocolonialism, and one about the Dutch War of Independence.

The BMGN is a journal for the history of the Netherlands, Belgium and their global presence, and for this special edition a series of articles were written to provide a look back at how certain topics were handled in the journal.
