From the link above you can find the portfolios I wrote for my “Discovering the Dutch” course. Every week we had to write a short piece reflecting on what we had learnt about the Netherlands, Dutch society and history that week – and how it compares to our own countries.
Topics covered included tolerance, World War II, architecture, immigration, etc.
- Introduction: Impressions of the Dutch before arriving in Utrecht
- Religious history
- Muslims and prejudice
- Dutch cinema
- Medieval Utrecht
- WWII and architecture
