Bookweek Launch: Golden times, Black pages
Friday March 15 is the launch of the Dutch bookweek. This year an important theme is contrasts. The history of the Netherlands has seen great periods, but often these periods have a seamy side. It’s a history of heroism and betrayal, glorious events and disasters. On this evening three professors of the department Neerlandistiek will talk about the theme of the bookweek: Golden times, Black pages. They will talk about the ambiguity in the literature from India and South Africa in times of slavery.
