Cursusdoelen
Students develop an appreciation for the complexity of the concept of (national) culture.
Students gain insight in representations of contemporary Dutch culture and society.
Students develop competences in intercultural interacting and reflecting on intercultural interaction.
Students gain insight in Dutch (cultural) discourses on contemporary social and political issues.
Inhoud
This course invites both international and Dutch students who want to develop an understanding of Dutch culture and society from an intercultural perspective.
We will first consider the notion of (national) culture, and different approaches to (national) culture. In relation to the Dutch, we will consider auto-images and hetero-images, and the dynamics between the self and 'the Other'.  
We will explore the mechanisms involved in representing 'the Other' in an international context. Which hetero-images of the Netherlands and the Dutch exist, and how are these images to be understood? We will consider case studies from contemporary Dutch culture resonating abroad, e.g. the monarchy, and policies of toleration concerning ethical issues.
We will also explore representations of 'the Other' in a domestic setting. How are notions about Dutch identity constructed, what is the position of newcomers, expats, and other 'Others' in such a context? Again, we will consider case studies from contemporary Dutch society, such as the rise of (nationalist) populism on the political stage, and public discours related to religious and ethnic diversity.
The handbook and supplementary texts on selected themes present various disciplinary perspectives. The course is open to international and local students. Participants are encouraged to seek out representations of Dutch culture, and contribute from their own perspectives. By comparing perspectives and exchanging experiences, students thus gain first hand insight into the dynamics of the intercultural communication.
This course is the first course in the Minor Intercultural Communication.
 
Lingua Receptiva (Luistertaal)
This course is part of a bilingual minor (Dutch and English) and can be followed in Lingua Receptiva: students with a primarily receptive understanding of the working language (English) can write the exam and individual assignments in Dutch as well.
