Dutch Crossing: Journal of Low Countries Studies 38.3 (November 2014)
Publication date: 3 September 2014
For three balmy days in early June of 2012, the sixteenth biennial International Conference for Netherlandic Studies (ICNS) convened on the campus of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. The International Conference for Netherlandic Studies is the meeting venue for the American Association of Netherlandic Studies. In recent decades, the proceedings from the conference have traditionally been published in an edited volume. With this publication, however, we are trying something new. As such, we are happy to partner with Dutch Crossing which has cooperatively agreed to dedicate two issues to the scholarly fruits of the 2012 ICNS. The articles here have undergone the same peer-review process customary with Dutch Crossing: Journal of Low Countries Studies.

Dutch Crossing: Journal of Low Countries Studies 38.2 (July 2014)
Publication date: 10 June 2014
The theme of immigration seems to be discussed on an almost daily basis in the British media at the moment. However, as we know, it is not a new phenomenon, but has been an almost permanent feature in the history of Britain. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, many thousands of people from the Low Countries were forced to leave home and seek a new life elsewhere. Given its geographical proximity it is not surprising that many of these refugees headed for Norfolk in eastern England. Large Dutch and French communities were established in Norwich; there was a smaller Dutch community, which lasted for some 100 years, in Great Yarmouth; and short-lived Dutch communities were established in King’s Lynn and Thetford. The locals referred to the migrants as Strangers, their arrival brought both opportunities and challenges. In the five papers in this edition of Dutch Crossing, various aspects of the history of the Dutch Strangers in Norfolk are considered.
