Course Description: This course introduces the concept of national culture, and different approaches to studying national culture. It considers the construction of a national self-image as part of a public discourse, and explores the concept of “the other”, and representations of other national cultures. Within such an intercultural framework, the course discuss selected case studies from contemporary Dutch society in an international context, e.g. the workings of the educational system, policies of toleration concerning ethical issues, the political stage and the rise of populism, and issues of religious and ethnic diversity. The handbook and supplementary texts present various disciplinary perspectives. Participants are encouraged to seek out and contribute representations of Dutch society from their own perspectives, thus exploring the dynamics of an intercultural context in the course.
