Holland

UCL houses the largest centre for Dutch Studies in the English-speaking world. The Department of Dutch was the first of its kind in the United Kingdom. It was here that Dutch first attained the status of a serious academic discipline and a chair in Dutch has been occupied almost continuously since 1919.

Today it offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes and, as part of the UCL School of European Languages, Culture & Society (SELCS), provides a uniquely supportive environment for those studying Dutch language, literature, history and society from the early modern period to today. In addition to the department's own staff, visiting lecturers and professors from the Netherlands and Flanders together with visiting students from Dutch and Flemish universities ensure regular contact between the department and the Dutch-speaking countries. The department's research interests are varied, broadly encompassing:

  • the Dutch language, critical language awareness and the teaching of Dutch as a foreign language;
  • Dutch literature, especially the Dutch Golden Age, the twentieth century, women's studies and colonial and post-colonial literature,
  • Dutch and Belgian political and cultural history, especially the modern and contemporary period,
  • translation studies and comparative literature.
