The ideal Dutchman

Nationale identiteitsvorming tussen 1648 en 1815

This video is available in Dutch only.

We Dutchies all know the advertisement of the Unox sausage sandwich: the Dutchiest sandwich of all. But what is Dutch exactly? Is there such a thing as the ideal Dutchmen or a Dutch national identity? And if so, when did it come into existence? Lotte Jensen studies historical cultural texts in search of the roots of the Dutch identity.
