Dutch Crossing : Journal of Low Countries Studies

Dutch Crossing, established in 1977, is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary scholarly journal, devoted to all aspects of Low Countries studies: history and art history of the Low Countries, Dutch and Flemish (and occasionally Afrikaans) literary and cultural studies, linguistics of Dutch and Dutch as a foreign language, and intercultural and transnational studies. Coverage includes both the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as other places where Dutch historically had or continues to have an impact, including parts of the Americas, Southern Africa and South-East Asia. A special focus concerns relations between the Low Countries and the English-speaking world in all periods from the Middle Ages to the present day. Thematic issues have been produced on such topics as Anglo-Dutch relations in the 17th Century; Williamite Scotland and the Dutch Republic; contemporary Dutch women writers; Frisian culture; Landscape Painting; Literary Translation and Medieval Drama. Dutch Crossing aims to encourage research and intellectual exchange, to disseminate scholarly work by younger as well as established researchers, and to enhance the profile of Low Countries Studies and of Dutch and Flemish culture in the English-speaking world. All articles are in English and double-blindly peer-reviewed by at least one referee.
