43 - Canadian Association for the Advancement of Netherlandic Studies (CAANS)
The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Netherlandic Studies is the academic ‘home’ of Canadian (and other) scholars, from a myriad of disciplines, whose research focuses on some aspect of Netherlandic Studies, be it linguistic, literary, historical, political, diasporic, post-colonial, art-historical, etc.
For CAANS 2024, scholars are invited to submit proposals focusing on Dutch and English language use in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Hans Vanacker, editor of the cultural magazine Septentrion, Miroir de la culture en Flandre et aux Pays-Bas, will open the debate with a keynote lecture on the widespread use of English as a language of instruction at Dutch-language universities.
In addition to proposals focusing on this year’s theme, CAANS 2024 will also feature papers addressing any other topic related to Netherlandic studies, including but not limited to language, literature, culture, history, art and art history, or politics.
