Professor Ida Nijenhuis holds an endowed chair and is an expert in opening up and editing of historical sources. Source-criticism is the starting point of every historian’s studies and stories. Unlocking and editing both traditional and new sources and media in a correct and reliable way is a prerequisite. Students need to receive sufficient training in finding sources as well as examining their findings scrupulously.
Professor Nijenhuis applies her expertise and the infrastructure available at the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands to academic research and teaching in documentary editing and source criticism. She carries out research into the sources of the early modern history of the market and the state.
