N450 	Introduction to the Civilization of the Netherlands		

Taught in English; no prerequisites.  Course open to graduates and
undergraduates.  While N350 gave students a general introduction to
the contemporary culture of the Low Countries, N450 will go into the
history of the Low Countries more specifically.  Previous knowledge on
the Low Countries is not necessary.

We will go through the history from the beginning until the 1940s, by
using the textbook below and by reading additional excerpts of texts
on/from the specific period.  Within the history framework, we will
also focus on the development of the Dutch and Belgian identity as
they exist today and on the main streams in art history.

Texts:	
	History of the Low Countries, JCH Blom & E. Lamberts
	books on reserve
	handouts in class
