During the 12th ALCS Conference Picturing Reality, (28-30 June, University of Sheffield), we will map and analyse a wide range of areas of interchange or zones of contact in a Low Countries context. We approach ‘traditional’ or binary pairings such as fiction and truth, art and life, imagination and history through a lens of complementarity and not only in terms of contamination and opposition. We regard adaptation and translation as exemplary contact zones.
We can boast a truly international conference with speakers from 4 continents and 11 different nations.
Selected papers will be published in the ALCS Journal: Dutch Crossing: Journal of Low Countries Studies
The Centre for Dutch and Flemish Studies will host the 12th ALCS conference as part of the festivities celebrating 70 years of Dutch Studies at the University of Sheffield.
