Research group

Institute for the Study of Literature in the Low Countries (ISLN)


  • Dutch literature from the 16th to the 18th century (mainly drama and song). In the area of ​​the scene happens especially research into the genre, the performance capabilities (with 3D reconstructions of historic theaters) and the referential aspects of the scene. In terms of the song we are working on the Dutch Song Database. The attention is paid to both secular and spiritual hymnals. The emphasis is more on the litearaire aspect than on the musical.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
