28 juni 2018, Sheffield: 70 Years of Dutch at Sheffield University


Please join us to celebrate the first seven decades of Dutch at Sheffield. Dutch started modestly in 1948 as an option for students of German. Seventy year later Sheffield boasts the largest Dutch Section in the Anglophone world.

We would like to invite you to celebrate this with us on
Thursday 28 June 2018

This is the day of the opening of the ALCS International Conference on Dutch Studies: Picturing Reality, which will take place in Sheffield. The (draft) Programme can be found here.

You are most welcome to join us for the opening of the conference in the Council Room, Firth Court at 5 pm. The opening address will be by Prof. Lotte Jensen (Nijmegen). This is followed by a wine reception. This event is free.

We will then proceed to our festive dinner in Weston Park Museum. Please join us from 19.30. For this you will have to book a place before 1 June. The three course meal in Weston Park’s main gallery setting is £20. Please choose ‘Optional Extras’ if you are not registering for the Conference. We have 60 places so don’t wait too long.
