Spring Term '01 Time Schedule for Dutch


Dutch and Flemish Studies

Dutch Studies has been an integral part of the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures since the early seventies. The program offers courses in the fields of language acquisition and literature appreciation. The first- and second-year courses on speaking and reading satisfy the language requirement. Upper-level courses investigate the literature of the Low Countries in the broadest sense; in the past topics covered the most modern literature as well as medieval genres, the literature of Rembrandt's time as well as Vincent van Gogh's letters or Dutch colonial literature from The East Indies. Possibilities of individual studies in combination with for instance European or World History, anthropology or Indonesian Studies are encouraged. Being the link between English and German and the "mother" to Afrikaans, the Dutch language offers special challenges for students with linguistic interests.

A special course is offered: Anne Frank in Past and Present (Dutch 492) in which the famous diary and its impact are studied and compared to other Holocaust writings. The first-year seminar entitled Colonialism and its Aftermath (Dutch 160) enhances and emphasizes the wide scope of Dutch and Flemish Studies, as the history of the low countries is examined in contacts with new worlds in East and West.

Each year in May, students of Dutch have the opportunity to acquire the internationally recognized certificate of proficiency in Dutch, on three levels.

Grants are available from the Dutch and Belgian Government for summer courses in Zeist (The Netherlands) and Hasselt (Belgium).
