New videos Unifocus: Meet the Dutch, demographer Fanny Janssen and Bethlehem's star in Groningen

23 October 2014

The new Unifocus, the video magazine of the University of Groningen, is online. In this week's edition:

  • Meet the Dutch. The Dutch Studies programme teaches new exchange students from all of the faculties about Dutch language, culture, art and history.
  • The person behind the figures. Demographer Fanny Janssen conducts research on future mortality in Europe.
  • Bethlehem's star in Groningen. For centuries, experts have been discussing the Star of Bethlehem, of biblical renown. New calculations using modern computer programs have led to a new theory on the star's authenticity. As a result, a two-day conference has been organized at the University of Groningen.

Each episode of the biweekly online video magazine Unifocus includes three items related to the University of Groningen, in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
