About the Author

David van der Linden is NWO Rubicon postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on migration patterns, religious conflict and memory practices, in particular in early modern France.


'This brilliant and long overdue study fills a major gap in our understanding of the Huguenot settlement in the Netherlands as well as of the ways Dutch Huguenot memory gradually took shape following the original migration.' Bertrand Van Ruymbeke, Universite Paris 8, France 'Experiencing Exile provides an excellent look into the complexity of the Huguenot experience (p. 2). The author's work responsibly handles countless sources with the thoroughness that many previous scholars have lacked, and for this, he should be praised. Van der Linden's brilliant historiographical introduction is a testament to his willingness to reread and re-evaluate traditional sources en route to new interpretations. In well-written prose, van der Linden retells the stories of many relocated Huguenots and incorporates related fields of history into his work such as the history of memory, audience reception, and migration history. Van der Linden should surely be praised for a valuable contribution to Huguenot history and early modern history in general.' Reviews in History
