The 13th ALCS International Conference took place at UCL from 6 to 8 November 2019.

We welcomed over 70 colleagues from across Europe and a sizeable contingent from the US, resulting in 15 panel sessions, 42 papers, as well as four keynotes that were open to a wider audience and shed a light on Worlding the Low Countries from the perspective of history, literature, culture and translation. You can find the full conference programme here.

This year’s keynote speakers were Dagomar Degroot (Georgetown University), Saskia Pieterse (Utrecht University), Theo Hermans (UCL) and Bambi Ceuppens (Africa Museum Brussels).
