Meeting Description:

The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Netherlandic Studies is the academic ‘home’ of Canadian (and other) scholars, from a myriad of disciplines, whose research focuses on some aspect of Netherlandic Studies, be it linguistic, literary, diasporic, post-colonial, etc. This year, our annual conference will take place fully online, for the very first time in the history of our association, in partnership with the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the University of Alberta.

Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. Frieda Steurs (KU Leuven and INT Leiden), founder and former president of NL-TERM, the Dutch terminology association for both the Netherlands and Flanders, the head of research of the INT, the Dutch Language Institute in Leiden, and the Secretary-General of CIPL, the Permanent International Committee of Linguists. Dr. Steurs’ keynote lecture, Language is Business! On the impact of linguistic applications in our society, will focus on the economic value of language and examine the language sector in the Dutch speaking world.
