CAA NL-FL Call for papers, for those speaking German with an English accent

caanlThe Computer Applications and Quantitative methods in Archaeology (CAA) conference has many national chapters who also organise annual meetings or other activities, usually in their own language. The Dutch-speaking low countries of the Netherlands and Flanders have teamed up for this purpose. Their annual meeting will take place on 22-23 October 2015 at the University of Amsterdam. The call for papers is open now until 30 August 2015, so hurry up to get your abstract in.

You might need to understand some Dutch, but according to my wife it’s just German spoken with an English accent … I totally disagree with this statement, Dutch is a proper language with its own vocabulary and grammar. But I always fail to get popular support for my case once people ask me to count to 10 in Dutch: een, twee, drie, vier, vijf, zes, zeven, acht, negen, tien… (nothing like German with an English accent if you ask me, but apparently that’s a minority opinion. Yet another reason why the Dutch-speakers teamed up to form their own CAA chapter).
