Foreign Eyes: International Students Reflect on Utrecht (Paperback)
Every year hundreds of students from all over the world come to study in Utrecht. On the occasion of the 375th anniversary of the founding of Utrecht University, foreign students and alumni were invited to reflect on Dutch culture as they had experienced it in their university years there. This book collects the best of the essays they wrote; the result is a unique and fascinating contribution to the study of Dutch culture. These essays offer not only an intimate portrait of the students’ experiences, but also a fresh perspective on the remarkable, frustrating, and fascinating features of Dutch culture.
Emmeline Besamusca lectures in Dutch culture at Utrecht University and the University of Vienna. She is coeditor of Discovering the Dutch.
