Membership of the ALCS is open to anyone with an academic interest in the Low Countries. Low Countries Studies is not limited to linguists or literary scholars. We also count historians, art historians, bibliographers and political scientists amongst our members. If you support our aims and activities, please join the ALCS. Our members:

  • will receive three issues per year of our journal Dutch Crossing;
  • can post to and receive messages from our mailing-list;
  • are invited to our biennial international conferences;
  • can apply for an ALCS research grant;
  • support anglophone Dutch Studies as an academic subject in the UK, Ireland and worldwide


The membership year starts from the moment we receive your payment. A subscription of Dutch Crossing is part of your membership.

Standard £40 or €45
Concession (for students and others on very low incomes) £25 or €30
Benefactor (for those members who feel they can afford a little extra to support the ALCS) £75 or €75
