6th Biennial Conference
5 – 7 January 2006
University College London
ALCS organises a conference every two years. The conference is open to people from all corners of the globe engaged in Low Countries Studies and provides an opportunity to demonstrate and discuss current research. It is also a platform for exchange between scholars from the English-language region of Europe and those from the Low Countries and elsewhere in the world. The Association’s general meeting is also held at the conference.
The 6 th biennial ALCS conference will be held at University College London from lunchtime on Thursday, 5 January 2006 until lunchtime on Saturday, 7 January 2006.
The theme of the conference will be Trading Cultures. With the stress on ‘Trading’, the central issue for this theme is the relation between socio-cultural and political-economic values (art and money, beauty and power, culture and commerce, language and politics). With the stress on ‘Cultures’, the central issue becomes the interchange between the Low Countries’ culture(s) and other cultures.
