About the event
Join us for a livestream panel discussion to mark the opening of our winter exhibition North Sea Crossings: Anglo-Dutch Books and the Adventures of Reynard the Fox.
The exhibition tells the story of Anglo-Dutch exchanges through beautiful medieval manuscripts, early prints, maps, animal stories and other treasures from the Bodleian’s collections.
Join our panel discussion which celebrates a special relationship which has lasted over 900 years. Watch our expert panel explore the historical as well as the broader context of Anglo-Dutch relations in politics, art, literature, and modern life.
The discussion will be streamed on this page and on our YouTube channel.
