COUNTER TENDENCIES IN THE SECULARIZATION OF DUTCH LITERATURE BETWEEN 1980 AND 2000
In accordance with my initial plans, I managed to finish my book on Dutch writers and religion 1960-2010. On 22 June the manuscript was handed over to the publisher Vantilt, Nijmegen. It will appear in print before the end of this year 2010. The drafts of eight chapters had already been written before my stay at NIAS began. During my stay I wrote another four chapters and an introduction. All chapters were revised thoroughly.
