About the conference

The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Netherlandic Studies, also known as CAANS, will be holding its annual meeting on May 28 and 29. The programme will offer a rich variety of talks on all things Dutch (and Flemish): from the historical to the religious, from the literary to the artistic, from the folkloric traditions of the past to the avant-garde art movements of today, from the Dutch and Flemish immigrant experiences in North America to current political issues in the Netherlands and Belgium. In short, a smorgasbord of topics certain to appeal to a wide audience.


Featured speakers

The CAANS 2016 keynote speaker is Dr. Peter van Zonneveld (Universiteit Leiden), whose work focuses on the Dutch literature of the 19th century and of the Dutch colonial era.
