The primary purpose is to develop an international network for discussion and collaboration on issues and ideas relevant to the study of the Low Countries as a whole and to the different national histories in particular.

Call for Reviewers

H-Low Countries is pleased to announce the revival of our network's own book reviews program. H-Net Reviews play an increasingly prominent role in academic discussions, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards. And now, under the H-Commons platform, list editors can easily crosspost reviews from other networks, greatly expanding the potential readership for reviews published on our network.
