The Dutch explained op 12 mei

The Dutch explained



Interactive lecture on Tuesday May 12th, 19.30 – 21.00 hrs. Vrijhof/Amphitheatre.


The University of Twente is an international university with students from all over the world. One of the first things they encounter when studying at the campus are the typical habits and customs of the Dutch. Why are Dutch so tidy? So punctual? Why do they seem so informal? Or is this merely appearance? Gitta Montanus will shed light on these questions and explain why the Dutch are as they are. This lecture is very interesting for students from abroad, but will be surprising and insightful for the Dutch as well. The program is highly interactive.


Drs. Gitta Montanus is a cultural anthropologist who travelled and studied all around the world. She visited Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Israel, the United States and almost all European countries. The biggest culture shock she experienced in Great-Britain.


This lecture will be in English. Admittance free, no reservations.
