Message from the Groningen team

As previously announced, on 1 January 2019 OSL officially moved from the University of Amsterdam to the University of Groningen. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the UvA team – Director Henk van der Liet, Programme Director Stephan Besser, Managing Director Paul Koopman, and Office Manager Chantal Olijerhoek – for their amazing work and their invaluable contribution to OSL’s constant growth.

We are very much looking forward to working with the OSL Board and members on the School’s future activities, with the shared aim of taking active part in the most exciting developments for Literary Studies within and beyond the Netherlands.

The School’s new email address is The previous one ( should still be used for the following matters: Ravenstein Seminar and Keynote Lecture (Winter School 2019), OSL Schrijfcursus voor geeteswetenschappers 2018-2019, OSL Seminars ‘Perspectives on African Literature’ and ‘Postcolonial Remembrances’ (2018-2019).
