Online expert meeting to kick-off preparations for the Conference: ‘The Dutch Campaign under command of Gen. A. Benckendorff during November-December 1813’

On 17 November 2021, in preparation for the international scientific conference, which is envisioned for Autumn 2022, an international – English-language – online meeting for the experts involved, will be organised by Museum Geelvinck and the Historical Association of Wijhe, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Culture of the Autonomous Republic of Bashkortostan (Russian Federation).

The aim of the meeting is to put together an inventory of the knowledge clusters, formulating the various open questions and defining the starting points for further preparatory research by the working groups. The inventory of the various expertise clusters will also make the knowledge gaps visible. The boundaries of the field of research is defined by formulating the questions for the conference.

The program is split in two thematic parts:

I. The role of the 1e Bashkir Regiment in the Dutch Campaign

II. The Dutch Campaign under command of Gen. A. Benckendorff and its impact on the renaissance of the Dutch Orange nation-state – alternative national perspectives

The second part includes a discussion panel, which can also be participated in via chat. During the online meeting, speakers can give a presentation, which has been digitally recorded in advance, or either lead a thematic break-out room. Finally, the conclusions are formulated in a final plenary session.

It is intended that the online meeting will be opened with a welcome speech by the mayor of Wijhe, Ton Strien, and a message from the Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan.

The online meeting will be digitally recorded.

It is the intention to form several working groups to further prepare for the conference planned for Autumn 2022.

Subsequently, working groups can meet online in the following months. These are preparing the actual conference, which, if all goes according to plan, will take place in the fall of 2022. 

The aim is that the conference will coincide with the intended visit of the Head of the Autonomous Republic of Bashkortostan to the Netherlands, on which occasion the Bashkir monuments in Veessen and Wijhe will be officially dedicated. 

The conference will take a hybrid form and can also be followed online by interested parties. It is the intention, that the papers presented by the speakers will eventually be published. In addition, it is intended to develop a glossary and a bibliography.
