Welcome/Welkom to the website of the American Association for Netherlandic Studies (AANS). The AANS is an organization that promotes the study of anything encompassing the language, literature, art history, history or society/culture of the Dutch-speaking world. You will find a community in the AANS to exchange ideas, discuss research or diffuse scholarly knowledge connected to the Low Countries. To that end, the AANS organizes a conference every other year (in even years) to connect and learn from each other.
We hope that this website can be a helpful resource for information as well as for the advancement of the study of Flanders and the Netherlands. We're glad you're here.
