In the course of the evening, the history of the Dutch language is presented under different angles: the Germanic roots, Latin influence, the history of the linguistic border, the first texts in Dutch, the separation of the Low Countries and the birth of a standard language. The lecture also deals with the Flemish movement, the struggle against French, and the search for a Flemish linguistic identity.

Lecturer: Jacques Van Keymeulen, Faculty of Arts
