The Low Countries Seminar is an interdisciplinary group with wide-ranging interests in the history of the Netherlands and Belgium. We include historians of art and literature as well as ‘straight’ historians, and are welcoming to students and the general public as well as scholars. The topics of the papers we hear range chronologically from the Middle Ages to the present, with a majority focusing on the Golden Ages of Flanders and Holland in the early modern era.
