A Germanic Sandwich 2015

24 - 25/04/2015
A Germanic Sandwich 2015 will be the fifth in a series of conferences in which Dutch is compared with its closest Germanic neighbours, English and German. The first edition took place in Berlin in 2005 to commemorate the appearance of Nederlands tussen Duits en Engels ('Dutch between German and English'), a study by the renowned Dutch linguist C.B. van Haeringen. Subsequent editions were held in Sheffield (2008), Oldenburg (2010) and Leuven (2013). This two-day conference will take place on 24 and 25 April 2015 at the University of Nottingham (UK Campus).
