It is good practice for any association to look periodically at their aims and objectives and to check if they are still getting things right. The last time the ALCS measured and mapped the field of Dutch Studies in the UK and Ireland was in 2006.
More than ten years on, the Executive Committee feels that it is time for another ‘state of the field’. This time, in addition to mapping the teaching and academic research in all areas of Low Countries Studies (including the Dutch language and all aspects of Dutch and Flemish culture), we want to canvas the views of our members: is the ALCS doing the right things to fulfil our aims?
To carry out the research the Association for Low Countries Studies is looking for an enthusiastic (student) researcher to undertake this survey of the state of Low Countries Studies in Great Britain and Ireland.
If you think you are the right person to take on this research task, please send an expression of interest containing a brief outline of your research approach and timeline with a short CV to ALCS@sheffield.ac.uk
