Dutch and Flemish Studies

Dutch and Flemish Studies refers to the scholarly study of all cultural expression in Dutch.

The Dutch language is not only associated with the Netherlands, but also with Belgium, in particular its Dutch language region: Flanders. Dutch is also spoken in the North of France and beyond Europe. In the Caribbean it is an official language in Suriname and on the islands of the former Dutch Antilles.

The aims of the Centre for Dutch and Flemish Studies is to:

  • bring together expertise in Dutch Studies at the University of Sheffield and in the North of the UK in an interdisciplinary research Centre;
  • organise regular cultural events open to anybody with an interest in Dutch and Flemish language and culture;
  • organise events specifically for students such as translation workshops and Dutch Studies Days;
  • seeksto strengthen the collaboration between the various academic and cultural players in the UK and beyond;
  • work whenever possible with local and national partners.
