This course focuses on Dutch literature and culture of the Golden Age (approx. 1550-1700) within the context of the Renaissance as a European movement. Literary texts will be related to other cultural products and to their historical, political and philosophical background. The main questions to be answered are: 1. How did Dutch authors imitate and emulate Renaissance genres, following the examples of Italian and French authors? 2. How and why did Dutch authors respond to, and take part in, political and religious debates in the Dutch Republic? 3. How and why did Dutch artists cooperate in the making of books, prints, paintings and buildings? Part of this course is a group excursion to the former Town Hall (Royal Palace) at Dam Square, Amsterdam.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
