Lecture series 'Curious about the Dutch'

The lecture series on Dutch Culture and Society is a course aiming not only at foreign students, but also at visiting faculty members or employees of international business companies. In fact, every non-Dutch visitor to Groningen interested in any aspect of Dutch society will find something of his or her interest in this series.

Every Wednesday evening, a lecture will be given on a broad range of topics: for instance Dutch film, photography, literature, politics, law, World War II, gender, Dutch Frisians, landscape history, art, music, theatre, archaeology with a focus on the regional past, economics, mass media, and the former Dutch colonies.
