University College London (UCL), founded in 1826 as a radical counter-institution to Oxford and Cambridge, today is London’s leading multidisciplinary university with 8,000 staff and 25,000 students. It houses the oldest Department for Dutch Studies in the UK, celebrating its centenary in 2019. As part of the UCL School of European Languages, Culture & Society, UCL Dutch offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programmes and is one of the leading centres of excellence in both teaching and research in the field of Dutch and Flemish language and culture in the Anglophone world.
The conference is organised in collaboration with the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies, a space for critical thinking and engaged enquiry within and across conventional disciplinary and departmental boundaries, and will take place in the UCLIAS premises.
We are looking forward to celebrating our centenary with you in November!
