Open Access

Dutch CrossingManey has two Open Access routes: Gold (immediate) and Green (delayed). Further information is available on our website, please see here: www.maneyonline.com/page/openaccess.

The Gold OA route is for authors wishing to pay to make their articles immediately Open Access.

The Green OA route, often referred to as self-archiving, enables authors to comply with their funder mandates even when there are no publication funds to support Gold (immediate) OA. Authors may deposit a copy of their manuscript in an institutional repository as long as it complies with the embargo period for each journal (currently 24 months for Dutch Crossing and our other Humanities journals).

There are no publication fees associated with Green OA or self-archiving. There are, however, restrictions on which version of an article may be archived without seeking further permission from Maney. Moreover, all articles placed in an institutional repository should provide full citation to the published article on Maney Online with the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) specified. All articles are protected by copyright. Terms of reuse are described below. For more information, please see Maney’s copyright permissions policy: www.maneyonline.com/page/authors/copyrightandpermissions.

The following table shows how authors may reuse their article. These rights apply for Maney authors who publish their article in a subscription journal. A full acknowledgment and link to the final published version should always be included.

8th Edition of ALCS Student Days

maud3On 19th and 20th March 2015 the ALCS will organize the 8th edition of our ALCS Student Days. The University of Sheffield is host.

All university students of Dutch from the UK and Ireland are invited for a 24-hour programme with culture workshops, films, performances, and presentations by employers.  It is an opportunity to find out more about Dutch and Flemish culture, to meet employers and to learn more about your prospects as a student of Dutch.  But it is also a chance to meet up, to meet new people and to have fun.

This year we will combine the Student Days with a public event and we have opted for a festival style approach. We will definitely welcome Maud Vanhauwaert as one of our artists.

We will soon announce the full programme of workshops and performances. For now, just mark the dates in your diary and keep an eye on this website, Facebook or Twitter for updates.

If you’d like to know more about the event or would like to book a place for yourself and your students, please contact Louise Snape at louisesnape@gmail.com.

Here is a short video we recorded during the previous edition in Notthingham.

This event is generously sponsored by the Dutch Language Union.

Rembrandt’s Late Works at the National Gallery

rembrandtdetailsWith ‘Rembrandt: The Late Works’, Dr Betsy Wieseman has put together a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition which examines the themes that preoccupied Rembrandt as he grew older: self-scrutiny, experimentation, light, observation of everyday life and even other artists’ works; as well as expressions of intimacy, contemplation, conflict and reconciliation.

From the 1650s until his death in 1669 Rembrandt, the greatest master of the Dutch 17th century, pursued an artistic style that was expressive and radical. His bold manipulation of printing and painting techniques and progressive interpretations of traditional subjects inspired generations of artists.

Luc Devoldere (Ons Erfdeel) during his key note address at the ALCS Conference 2014 at UCL

Hailing from Berkeley, California to Budapest, from Amsterdam to Brussels but above all from all corners of the UK, the ALCS welcomed over forty delegates and speakers to the 10th Biennial Conference at University College London from 10-12 September 2014.

The conference theme ‘Discord and Consensus’ was explored from a variety of angles in plenary meetings, panels and themed sessions. The presentations on linguistics, literature, history and art history were a clear testimony to the depth and breadth of Dutch Studies in the UK and beyond.  In collaboration with the UCL Centre for Dutch Studies, the programme also included an evening of poetry by Ester Naomi Perquin.

Our UCL colleagues pulled off an impeccable organisation and in addition to the quality of the papers, many delegates commented on the constructive spirit of the conference. One of our up and coming colleagues Dr Nick Piercey (UCL) noted: ‘I really enjoyed the conference; it was easily the most enjoyable one I have been to and it felt so warm, welcoming and vibrant. I might be a new member of the ALCS, but it was a wonderful atmosphere and I picked up lots of new ideas in a range of topics.’

All contributors are invited to submit their papers for the conference volume with the working title Discord and Consensus in the Low Countries in the Crossways series that accompanies Dutch Crossing. We are in negotiations with a reputable university press to do so. To be included we would like to invite you to submit your paper on or preferably before 31 October 2014 via the following site: http://bit.ly/1s9hKn

The conference was made possible with financial support of the Nederlandse Taalunie, the Royal Netherlands Embassy and the Flemish Representation in the UK. With many thanks again to our UCL colleagues Jane Fenoulhet, Gerdi Quist, Josephine Salverda and Ulrich Tiedau.
