ALCS Call for papers

3 March 2014

The 10th biennial conference of the Association for Low Countries Studies will be held from 10-12 September 2014 at University College London and the Dutch Centre in the City of London (Austin Friars). This year’s theme will be “Discord and Consensus” in a Low Countries context and original contributions are invited that interpret the conference theme in the broadest possible sense.

Keynote speakers will be Dr Henriëtte Louwerse (University of Sheffield), Prof. dr. Jan Blommaert (Tilburg University) and Prof. dr. Inger Leemans (VU Amsterdam).

Both individual contributions (20-minute presentations which will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion) and proposals for fully constituted panels are invited. Panel conveners are invited to suggest a 90-minute themed panel of three speakers. We specifically invite postgraduate students and a number of full bursaries are available.

Please submit your proposals by 30 April 2014.
