Bridge Builders: Dutch Studies in Russia and Russian Studies in the Netherlands from a Historical Perspective

June 4-5, 2021

Through the ages, the relations between the Netherlands and Russia have been marked by major fluctuations. During two conferences – one in St. Petersburg and one in Amsterdam – there will be presented a number of cases from the fourteenth till the beginning of the twenty-first century, with regard to institutional as well as non-institutional Dutch studies in Russia and Russian studies in the Netherlands. The focus will be on the twentieth century, when Dutch and Slavic departments have been founded at Russian and Dutch universities respectively. Apart from institutional history and the work of important slavists and scholars in Dutch studies, we will pay attention to the history of Russian-Dutch lexicography and to literary translation. Both conferences will also leave room for lectures intended for a broader audience.
