Thomas Franssen studies the development of translation flows of fiction and poetry books in the Netherlands between 1980 and 2009. His study is inspired by the rising prominence of translations from English in the Netherlands after the Second World War and the overall increasing importance of Anglo-American culture in Western Europe. As such, he sets out to study how translation flows in fiction and poetry developed over the last three decades.
