The 13th ALCS International Conference took place at University College London (UCL) from 6-8 November 2019.

We welcomed over 70 colleagues from across Europe and a sizeable contingent from the US, resulting in 15 panel sessions, 42 papers, as well as four keynotes that were open to a wider audience and shed a light on ‘Worlding the Low Countries’ from the perspective of history, literature, culture and translation.
