Beginning in 2007, Columbia University offered a one-week Dutch workshop during the second week of June. The workshop provided students with an introduction to reading strategies of Dutch texts and was accompanied by a 17th-century Dutch paleography course taught by Dr. Frans Blom, Associate Professor of Dutch Literature at the University of Amsterdam. Enrollment was open to doctoral students from all universities. Sponsored by the Queen Wilhelmina Chair with the support of the Nederlandse Taalunie, the workshop was free of charge and bore no academic credit. Students wishing to participate in the workshop were required to have completed at least one year of Dutch or to have maintained fluency in German.
