Project description

This research aims at mapping and analyzing the networks of Dutch and Flemish cultural transmitters who, between 1860 and 1940, had a particular interest in Scandinavian literature. The analysis is based on a model of Social Network Analysis that is designed specifically for cultural transfer. A contrastive Dutch-Flemish perspective makes it possible to bring up language ideology abd the ethnolinguistic discourse.
