Call for Papers: Historians of Netherlandish Art Conference, London and Cambridge, July 2024
- Region: International
- Type: Call for Papers
- Cost: Free
2024 marks the first time in the forty-year history of the Historians of Netherlandish Art that the biennial conference will be held in the UK. Cultural, political and economic exchange has been pivotal to the histories of the UK and the Low Countries and these relationships have taken on new significance and have new potential as the UK renegotiates its relationship with Europe after Brexit. ‘Britain and the Low Countries: Cultural Exchange Past, Present & Future’ considers the extraordinary depth and breadth of the relationships between the constituent nations of the UK, Belgium, and The Netherlands.
The conference is comprised of workshops in London and Cambridge on 10 and 13 July 2024 (details to come) and 40 paper sessions to be delivered at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge, on 11 and 12 July. Thirteen of our sessions relate to the subject of Britain and the Low Countries. These fall under three broad themes: technology and the natural sciences, key themes in scholarship on British-Netherlandish culture, and medium-based scholarship in the British-Netherlandish context. There are 25 further sessions on a broad range of themes and 2 career-development sessions.
