Today, Thursday 29 October, the University of Groningen celebrates 40 years of cooperation with the Carl-von-Ossietzky Universität in Oldenburg, Germany.
The Special Collections department made a virtual exhibition about 400 (!) years of Groningen and Oldenburg. Pivotal is a conflict between Ubbo Emmius, the first rector of the academy of Groningen, and the Oldenburg court.
The story is illustrated with unique materials from our Special Collections, such as a booklet with handwritten notes by Ubbo Emmius himself, original letters and exquisite maps of East Friesland and Oldenburg.
PhD candidates Raoul Buurke, Hedwig Sekeres, and Lourens Visser from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen have developed a board game: Streektaalstrijd.
In language education, do not limit yourself to just Dutch and English; instead, embrace multilingualism. That is the core message of multilingualism professor of Second Language Acquisition, Prof Marije Michel.
