Miles Jupp is Insufficiently Belgian
Comedian Miles Jupp has always known that he is descended from Belgian stock. But as Miles
prepares for a trip to Belgium to uncover his long lost family, some
cracks start to appear in his family tree. Could Miles actually be
insufficiently Belgian? Christine Sas from UCL teaches Miles Jupp some Flemish in preparation for his trip.
The Centre for Low Countries Studies at University College
London brings together the college’s expertise in Dutch Studies which ranges
across the disciplines of art history, cultural studies, history, language
studies, comparative literature and translation studies and has links to area
studies, migration studies and postcolonial studies.
The Centre aims for an inclusive approach, so that the Low Countries takes in the entire historic region of what is now the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. In addition, our interests reach into those places on the globe where Dutch-speaking peoples live or have lived, including parts of the Americas, South Africa and Southeast Asia.
