Research groups

The study of language and culture is central to the research at the Meertens Institute. Language is the main focus of the research group Linguistics and Language Variation, whereas the study of culture is mostly concentrated within the Ethnology and Oral Culture research group. In addition, a substantive part of the research takes place within the context of the overarching KNAW Humanities Cluster. Under this umbrella, two interdisciplinary, crossinstitutional research labs were founded: NL-Lab and DHLab.
