Published by Bruce Bolinger, a new member of the DIS, the website contains research done over the last eleven years focused on two areas:

"Language Latitude and Attitude in the Netherlands"

"Language Latitude and Attitude in the Netherlands" is the title of the lecture that Herm De Vries will give as Calvin College's new Frederik Meijer Chair in Dutch Language and Culture. Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 3:30 p.m. in the Commons Annex Lecture Hall. 

This talk will examine a range of questions regarding language in the Netherlands. How does the Dutch language figure in the immigration and naturalization process in the Netherlands? Is Dutch eroding due to nonchalance? Is English taking over in the Netherlands? 

Knowledge of Dutch is not necessary to appreciate this lecture. All are welcome. Refreshments provided.
