ALCS supports research trip Christopher Joby

The ALCS supported a research trip to London by Leeds lecturer Christopher Joby. He writes:

I spent three days in London at the end of July carrying out research for a number of outputs relating to Dutch Studies. First, I consulted a large number of books and articles at the British Library in order to complete an article on the use of Dutch in early modern Britain for the journal, Taal & Tongval. Secondly, I consulted books and articles at the BL in particular on the Flemish weavers at Mortlake. I shall use this material for the book on the use of Dutch in early modern Britain that I am currently writing. Thirdly, I had a meeting with Marja Kingma from the British Library concerning a project relating to Dutch Church archive material held at the LMA. I have also been editing a book on the multilingualism of Constantijn Huygens, which I shall submit to a publisher shortly. This visit allowed me to consult a number of relevant books and articles at the British Library. I would like to thank the ALCS for its generous support, which allowed me to undertake this research visit.
