In this special issue, two social historians, two historians of political culture, and two literary historians have engaged in an exploration of the relevance of Stephen Greenblatt’s concept of self-fashioning for their own research into the history and culture of the Dutch eighteenth century.

This introduction gives a brief overview of the research areas in which the concept has attracted most attention and provides some representative examples of recent scholarship.
