Professor Lisa Jardine, is the director of the Centre for Editing Lives and Letters and the Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects at UCL. Her book 'Going Dutch: How England Plundered Holland's Glory' won the 2009 Cundill International Prize in History.
Professor Lisa Jardine will give a lecture to mark the launch of the UCL Centre for Low Countries Studies.
The Centre runs a full programme of research, teaching, publications, and events focusing on the Low Countries: Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
Situated strategically between France, Germany, and Britain, the Low Countries lie at the economic, political, and cultural crossroads of Europe. Historically, they have always been a place where people, goods, and ideas from around Europe and beyond encounter and interact with one another.
The mission of the UCL Low Countries Centre is to study a series of historic relationships and to nurture their further development in the present day.
The lecture will be followed by a reception in the North Cloisters.
