Education Conference
Internationalisation - Great fun and hard work

The Faculty of Humanities is organising its annual education conference on Friday 13 November. This year’s theme is 'Internationalisation: Great fun and hard work!' Internationalisation is a hot topic at our Faculty and is therefore a fitting subject for our conference.

We will address a number of major questions on internationalisation: What actually is ‘internationalisation’? Who needs it and why? Just how ‘international’, staff- and student-wise, is our Faculty or should it be? Is internationalisation the same as Anglicisation? And when you work at the Faculty of Humanities, does it really make any difference whether you come from the Netherlands or from elsewhere?

Venue: Lipsius 0.19, Cleveringaplaats 1 in Leiden

14.00 – 14.10 hrs.  – Opening by André Gerrits, Professor of International Studies and chair of the programme committee
14.10 – 14.40 hrs. – Internationalisation at the Faculty of Humanities: Facts & figures by Joost Augusteijn, Vice-Dean, Faculty of Humanities. 
14.45 – 15.30 hrs. – workshops
15.45 – 16.30 hrs. – workshops
16.45 – 17.15 hrs. – Panel discussion: Non-Dutch at the Faculty of Humanities – does it make any difference? With: Cátia Antunes (History), Ruth Davison (Exchange Programmes Coordinator), Sasha Goldstein-Sabbah (LIAS).
17.15 – 18.15 hrs. – Drinks
