Welcome to Utrecht Summer School I am delighted to present to you the Utrecht Summer School programme for 2016. This year, we will once again be offering a great variety of academic summer courses, to students from all over the world. We are proud to present various new and challenging courses that differ in subject, level and duration. For example, the number of courses offered in the field of Law and Economics and Social Sciences has increased considerably. We are pleased that our excellent cooperation with the Hogeschool Utrecht (University of Applied Sciences) and with the HKU (University of the Arts Utrecht) is yet again reflected in a number of summer courses. This year, we will be working together with a wide selection of partners throughout the Netherlands. Furthermore, we are extremely pleased with the outstanding collaboration with our international partners and the resulting courses not only in Utrecht, but also in several other cities around the world. International students at Utrecht Summer School will certainly find themselves in good company. In 2015, around 3300 students came to Utrecht to participate in one or more of our courses. With over 120 nationalities working and studying closely together, students learn to work in an international environment from the start, which is essential for scientists in an increasingly globalized world. I hope you will enjoy reading this brochure, which is bound to contain something to your liking. I look forward to seeing you in Utrecht this summer.

Prof. Dr. G.J. van der Zwaan Rector Magnificus of Utrecht University

Here we are at the start of the 30th edition of Utrecht Summer School! I am very excited for you to see what the summer school has to offer in 2016. Our course offer is tremendously varied and contains over 200 courses, in all of the university’s faculties and ranging from bachelor to PhD level. Whether you are a PhD student concerned with medicine, a bachelor student with a keen interest in art history, or a student looking to learn the Dutch language and culture; we have a course that suits your needs. Our course offer also contains an international part. We work together with universities in Italy, Germany and Russia. The Utrecht Summer School ambition is to offer an up-to-date course programme where important economic, social, cultural and political issues are thoroughly studied and discussed. Our summer courses deal with important innovative subjects such as the Financial Crisis, Future Food, Game Research, Future Deltas, Neuroscience and many other more. Of course, your summer school experience does not have to end after a course of one or two weeks. Consider combining a few courses to truly get a feel for your subject. You can find some of our most well-known combinations in this brochure in the form of ‘special tracks’. These tracks not only allow you to easily apply for a combination of courses, they also generally result in a substantial discount. If you are looking to combine a different set of courses, go ahead and mix and match to create the ideal course package for you. This mix of a varied and academically challenging course offer with student housing and an extensive social programme ultimately results in a very exciting summer. Take your time and look through this brochure to find the course that will take you to Utrecht Summer School in 2016. You can apply online (www.utrechtsummerschool.nl), where you will also find more detailed information on each course. We hope to see you this summer.

The Netherlands The Dutch combine history and traditional culture with innovation, modernism and an international orientation. While Holland likes to emphasize its highly industrialized features, the Dutch have not let go of their background, often making use of the possibility to go for a quiet stroll along the historic canals that run through town. Holland, or the Netherlands The Netherlands is a kingdom. Its official name is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It consists of the Netherlands itself and Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten, in the Caribbean Sea. The country’s name in Dutch is Nederland, meaning ‘low country’ and referring to the fact that much of the land is at or below sea level. The Netherlands (Nederland) therefore means ‘low country’. Today the Netherlands is also called ’Holland‘, a name that is derived from the names of two western coastal provinces, North and South Holland. These provinces were the most developed and wealthiest parts of the country in the seventeenth century and they played a dominant role in the country’s history.

Geography Holland is situated in the west of Europe and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south and the North Sea to the north and west. This small country lies at the point where the German, British and French cultures meet. What strikes people most when they first arrive in Holland is the landscape: the country is extremely flat. While there are some hilly areas in the southeast corner of the country, even these barely infringe on the broad, unbroken expanse of sky that is so characteristic of the Dutch landscape. Moreover, water can be found everywhere, in the form of lakes, rivers, canals and the sea. The parts of the Netherlands below sea level would be flooded if there were no dikes, dunes and other fortifications. Holland’s relatively small area of slightly over 41,000 square kilometers. With 16.5 million inhabitants a population density of 499 people per km2, the Netherlands is the most densely populated country of the European Union. Society Dutch society is made up of over 190 different nationalities living in its many cities and villages. For decades, the country’s historical

ties with other parts of the world has brought people of non-Dutch origin to settle in Holland, which makes the Dutch generally openminded, freedom loving and tolerant towards foreigners. This cultural diversity has made Holland a place where knowledge, ideas and cultures from all over the world come together. Although Dutch is the national language, the majority of the population also speaks English and very often another foreign language, such as German or French. Mentality The Netherlands is a ‘self-service country’. The Dutch try to manage most things themselves, which makes them very independent and organized. Another distinctive characteristic of the Dutch is their openness and direct manner of acting and speaking. You will notice that you can say exactly what is on your mind, as the Dutch are not easily offended. Dutch society is organized in a nonhierarchical way. For example, teachers tend to be very accessible and true interlocutors for their students. You will be on familiar terms with everybody in almost no time.


Utrecht The history of the city goes back to 47 AD when the Roman emperor Claudius ordered his general Corbulo to build a defensive line along the river Rhine, which was the northern most border of the empire. One of the strongholds (or Castella) along the river was built at a crossing in the river and was called Traiectum (which means crossing place). In the local language this became Trecht, UutTrecht (lower-Trecht) and later Utrecht. At the place where once the castellum stood now stands the Dom church built in the 13th century. Nowadays, Utrecht is a lively city in the geographical centre of the Netherlands. It is not only an important junction where traffic, trade, distribution and services meet and mingle, but also a true knowledge centre: apart from Utrecht University and the HU University of Applied Sciences, it houses important research institutes and several other institutes of higher education. With its 300,000 inhabitants, Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands and with no less than 70,000 of the inhabitants being students; Utrecht is a true student city.

magnificent view over the city. To the south of the Dom is the city’s museum quarter. There you will find a varied offering of excellent museums in a setting of picturesque courtyards, unexpected small restaurants and delightful little shops. Along the canals you will find a rare phenomenon, of which Utrecht citizens are extremely proud: the wharves. These wharves, which provide direct access to cellars, were used for the loading and unloading of ships and the storage of goods in the Middle Ages. These days, they are mostly used as outdoor terraces for restaurants. Sitting by the water, you can enjoy a drink or a meal looking over the decorative lit canal.

Utrecht Summer School The Utrecht Summer School started in 1987, with one course: Dutch Culture and Society. In the last two decades, the summer school developed a broad selection of over 200 courses in virtually all disciplines Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts have on offer. In 2015, Utrecht Summer School attracted almost 3300 students from over 120 different countries; as such it is the largest academic summer school in Europe. The programme is characterised by strong, academic courses in a variety of subjects. For most of the courses ECTS credits are rewarded. Utrecht Summer School aims to provide its participants with an unforgettable stay in Utrecht and the Netherlands. Therefore, parallel to the study programme, a social programme has been set up which includes excursions, sports, social gatherings and festivities. Utrecht Summer School is a cooperation between Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts.

Several canals crisscross the city and encircle the city centre. The Dom tower is the focal point and the pride of the city: with a height of 112 meters, it offers a

The 20th Century: Europe in three Wars

Culture

Faculty of Humanities (UU) When asked about the twentieth century, most people’s first association are either Hitler or the Second World War. But during the twentieth century, Europe not just experienced one, but three horrific wars: the First and Second World War and the Cold War that followed in their wake. Oftentimes, the first half of the 20th century has therefore been labelled ‘The Era of Violence’, and perhaps rightly so. But this century might as well be regarded as an age of rebuilding, transatlantic collaboration, and global connections, thus making the twentieth century much more diverse.

Holocaust and Genocide in Modern Europe

Culture

Faculty of Humanities (UU) During the Second World War, about 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazi’s and their collaborators. Anne Frank, the teenager who was forced to go into hiding in war-time Amsterdam, probably more than anyone else, gave a face to these Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Her diary became one of the canonical texts of the twentieth century, and it is still felt to address the universal drama of persecution and human dignity. This course introduces you not only to the phenomenon of Holocaust but also to other genocides that shocked Modern Europe.

Leadership and Identity: The Integration of Spirituality in Healthcare, Welfare and Education Faculty of Humanities (UU) Awareness is growing about the importance of meaning, spirituality and ethics in organizations.

It stimulates reflection on identity: the identity of the individual professional worker, of the multidisciplinary cooperation and of the organization in general. Is it possible to combine rationalization and humanization? What kind of leadership do we need in our time?

Entrepreneurial Marketing – How Small Firms Can Win

Strategic Entrepreneurship

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

Entrepreneurship is usually associated with the startup of new ventures. In this fourth course in the track ‘Entrepreneurial Side of Business’, we will investigate the intersection between ‘traditional’ strategic management and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship can be used as a strategic tool in order to infuse large and established organizations with the flexibility and innovation that is usually associated with small organizations. Entrepreneurship in large and established organizations is also called strategic entrepreneur or corporate entrepreneurship.

If you ask an entrepreneur what skills or knowledge have to be developed in their company, most entrepreneurs will answer ‘marketing’. Most marketing courses however focus on larger firms even though the marketing strategies do not seem applicable to smaller entrepreneurial forms with smaller budgets. The main theme during this course will be how small and medium sized firms (SMEs) can create competitive advantage with the limited marketing resources they possess. Some knowledge on (traditional) marketing is nice to have but not necessary for this course.

However, the law, including international law, is not a perfect system, and just like the people who made it, it is biased. This interactive one-week course will look at law from a gender perspective, encompassing cis, gay, trans* and intersex perspectives. The focus is primarily on human rights but will cut across other areas of international law, such as refugee law. Through lectures, excursions, and group assignments, topical issues will be explored and analyzed, linking theory and practice.

European Competition Law and Economics: Cartels and Other Evils

Financial Law and Economics: Financial Crisis and Europe

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

This course deals with the effects of Financial and Securities Law on the global and European Economy, and vice versa. The Credit Crunch was caused by, amongst others, an inefficient regulation of securitization (of mortgage products) and poor governance of banks. The Eurocrisis showed the effects of the lack of rules and tools on the European economy. By way of lectures, participation in workshops and writing a paper, participants get insights in these issues while formulating solutions for a more sustainable financial system.

This course deals with the effects of European Competition Law on the behavior of businesses in the European Union (EU). An effective common market within the EU requires a fair and undistorted competition. Hence the European Commission (EC) vigorously attacks cartels. A recent example is the ‘cooperation’ between seven international groups of companies – Chungwa, LG Electronics, Philips, Samsung SDI, Panasonic, Toshiba, MTPD (currently a Panasonic subsidiary) and Technicolor (formerly Thomson) – which fixed prices, shared markets, allocated customers between themselves and restricted their output. In this case the European Commission imposed a total fine of € 1.47 billion in 2012. Prof.dr. Wilco J.

Understanding and managing Mergers and Acquisitions

Advanced Qualitative and Legal Methods in Criminology

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

Many executives say they use M&A as a means to consolidate or expand the market position of their firm or increase its productive efficiency. Most mergers and acquisitions, however, fail to create value, leading to the so-called ‘merger paradox’. By adopting a multidisciplinary and institutional perspective, this course aims to increase the understanding of merger determinants and effects, discusses key topics for value creation, and concludes with policy assessments. On the last day the students will participate in a negotiation training workshop and will present their papers on a major M&A transaction in their home country.

As an advanced training in qualitative and legal methods in criminology, the course aims to be a platform for PhD students preparing or conducting their criminological fieldwork, to discuss the methodological challenges within their research projects. The emphasis will be on 'doing research': candidates will be supervised on small assignments linked to their own PhD research projects. Previous knowledge on qualitative method is required.

Geometry Faculty of Science (UU)

Science

Geometry is the theory of space. "Space” is a multifaceted concept: it refers equally well to the phase space of a classical mechanical system, the differential-geometrical space of general relativity or the operator-theoretic space of quantum mechanics from physics, as to the internet as a huge graph of connections. The summer course on Geometry, which is organized by the Utrecht Geometry Centre, aims to cover a spectrum of modern Geometry as broad as possible, as well their interaction with neighboring fields such as logic, Lie and number theory and physics.

Introduction to Complex Systems Faculty of Science (UU) Our world has an abundance of so-called complex systems. These are typically large collections of connected elements that influence each other. Examples are the brain; society; traffic; the financial system; interacting institutions; climate; ecosystems; interacting atoms or molecules; the World Wide Web. These diverse examples have surprisingly many features in common. As a rule, they show various properties that make a complex systems more than the sum of their parts. In this course, we combine examples across physics, the life sciences, socioeconomic sciences and humanities with an introduction to basic mathematical tools to learn a complex systems way of thinking.

Business Process Management and IT

Observing Primate Behaviour

Information and Communication Technology (HU)

The summer course Observing Primate Behaviour focuses on getting familiar with primate observational methods by observing primate social behaviour and following the scientific cycle. Through the (statistical) analysis of gathered observational data, students answer and present their own research questions. Furthermore, the additional activities aim to provide the students with more background information on the different topics related to studying primate behaviour, such as welfare, colony management and fieldwork.

This course will provide both theoretical background and hands-on experience with business process management (BPM), improvement and innovation. On the one hand it is important for organizations to have grip on their processes, and to continually evaluate and improve their processes in an evolutionary way; Information Technology (IT) can play a supporting role in this. On the other hand innovative IT can play a disruptive role for businesses. In this course both aspects will be illustrated and discussed.

Applied Functional Programming in Haskell

Introduction into Quantitative Biology

Faculty of Science (UU)

Faculty of Science (UU)

Typed functional programming in Haskell allows for the development of compact programs in minimal time and with maximal guarantees about robustness and correctness. The course explores Haskell as well as its theoretical underpinnings such as typed lambda calculus, and Damas- Milner type inference. There is ample opportunity to put this all into practice during lab sessions.

Discoveries in the biological sciences increasingly require combining sophisticated technologies, quantitative measurements, and theoretical approaches such as bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and computer simulations. Hence, modern Life Sciences research faces the challenge to integrate different scientific disciplines and foster collaborative projects between biologists, chemists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians to make biology a quantitative natural science discipline. This course gives you a one week introduction into the approaches and research questions in this modern field of ‘quantitative biology’ We aim at students having completed a bachelor program in any of the sciences with a genuine interest in interdisciplinary work.

Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety

Pharmacoeconomics

Faculty of Science (UU)

Today's society is confronted with ever increasing health care costs. One of the factors in these rising costs are the cost of drug innovations. Diseases waiting for therapeutic solutions, are complicated and multifactorial in nature. As a result, drug innovation has become even more complex leading to high tech and therefore high cost solutions. The question arises, what is the added value of such high cost innovations and how can it be determined when both benefit and harm are considered. Health economics, and more specific pharmacoeconomics aims to provide a neutral scientific approach to this challenge. This course provides a broad perspective of the field of health economics (specific pharmacoeconomics), including a variety of subjects from views of the different stakeholders to more in depth methodological approaches, illustrated with examples and exercises.

With the prospect that innovative drug therapies will be introduced in the coming years, society demands new approaches and concepts for comparative risk/ benefit evaluation. Assessment of safety and risk management of different drug therapies is done in the framework of observational epidemiological studies This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drug ‘efficacy’. The course will cover key issues in pharmacoepidemio-logic and drug safety research. Students will learn about the typical problems (e.g. confounding by indication, rare side effects) and approaches to deal with these problems in the practice of pharmacoepidemiology.

Why Translational Medicine fails – And what to do about it

Cardiovascular Research

Faculty of Medicine (UU)

The cardiovascular system takes a central role in life by connecting all our organs. This allows for maintenance of a healthy environment for all the cells that make up the tissues of the body. Disturbance of the cardiovascular system therefore can have severe health effects. In this course you will be trained by expert researchers that study the cardiovascular system and are working at UMC Utrecht in the spearhead Circulatory Health. Lectures will cover topics as vascular function, cardiac function, imaging, genetics to epidemiology, and cardiac electrophysiology.

Translational medicine, the process of translating ideas from bench to bedside, is failing. To solve this colossal problem at the heart of biomedical science it is necessary to train and educate a new generation of translational scientists who understand how the science system works and who are equipped with the right skills and competences. Using real-life examples from the field of orphan and pediatric diseases we will help aspiring translational scientists to develop complementary and leadership skills needed to successfully navigate the complex field of translational medicine.

Cognitive Neuropsychology: From Patients to Functional Models

Conflict Resolution and Mediation Skills

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (UU)

In this course you will get familiar with theories concerning communication, conflict and conflict styles but the main focus of the course is to practice skills and acquire insight in your own conflict behavior as well as the mediation process and the skills of the mediator. After this course you will be more able to resolve your own conflict and to act as a mediator in a conflict between others.

Cognitive Neuropsychology studies the functional disorders people suffer after brain injury in order to construct and test formal models of cognitive functioning. It is strongly driven by fundamental theory but also can have implications for clinical diagnosis and therapy. Cognitive Neuropsychology gives invaluable insights in how the human mind works and forms an indispensable instrument in the modern Cognitive Neuroscience toolbox.

Contemporary and International Conflict Management

Migration, Integration and Ethnic Relations

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. While migrants try to find their way in a new and sometimes hostile environment, host populations also have to adapt to migrants and the new religious and cultural diversity they bring with them. Migrants and host populations face the challenge of acceptance and adaptation in spite of initial resistance, possible social exclusion and explicit political rejection by part of the host population. We discuss social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, the integration of immigrants and their children, and reactions of the host society.

Conflict management has become a prominent field of inquiry and practice in three main areas: scholarly, policy-oriented, and operational. In this setting, the course aims to enhance understanding of violent conflict and conflict management. The sessions deal with the recent cases of Afghanistan, Lebanon, Liberia, the Sudans, Sri Lanka and Uganda as illustrative examples, but also study other conflicts around the world. In addition, attention will be paid to the emergence of IS and the issue of refugees. Prof. dr.

Land Governance for Development

Future Deltas

Faculty of Geosciences (UU)

This course focuses on sustainable management of river deltas, that are increasingly under pressure of climate change and human impacts. Deltas are valuable areas, providing many services that are essential for humans such as fertile soils, fresh water, (river) transportation networks, low-relief accessible land, water purification and support of high biodiversity. Because of all these benefits hundreds of millions of people live in deltas worldwide, often in mega-cities.

Large-scale acquisition of land in the global South has received a great deal of interest in the last few years. Especially following the food crisis (2003-08), and stimulated by the growing demand for biofuels, pressure on land continues to increase. This course provides a multidisciplinary analysis of the ‘land rush’ within the more general context of land governance in Africa, Asia and Latin America: the history and drivers, the diversity of stakeholders and networks involved, the urgency and current challenges, and innovative governance solutions.

Introduction to L1 and L2 acquisition

Ask someone their opinion on bilingualism and you're likely to hear statements such as: learning two languages from birth confuses children and impairs their cognitive development', 'Bilingual children can't speak either of their two languages properly' or 'You can only become bilingual if you start acquiring your second language as a young child.' Though common currency among the general public, each of these statements is in fact a myth. In this course, you will discover why this is the case as we review some of the most important findings from the research on bilingual children.

Introduction to Generative Syntax

Evolution of Language

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Human language is complex and results from interacting simpler systems, which each may have had a long evolutionary history of its own. Nevertheless, the way these modules are integrated into a working system has been novel as well as recent. Relevant issues that will be addressed in this course include: uniquely human and/or linguistic; evaluation of core properties of human language from gestural or vocal systems of animal communication; evaluation gradual or saltational and exaptive; the primary function of language as communication or an efficient way of organising cognitive systems.

In this course, students will be introduced to the basics of the theoretical framework evolved from and based on Chomsky (1981). One of Chomsky’s main innovations was to give linguistics the formal tools to study language. The formal tools of generative linguistics enabled linguists to explore the complex system underlying sentence structure and sentence meaning. The theory accounts for the creativity of human language, the characteristic that makes it unlike the communication system of any other animal. Topics covered will include the major concepts used to analyze linguistic phenomena, such as phrase structure, movement, binding, and logical form. Prof. dr.

This crash course is meant as a basic introduction to statistical treatment of experimental data. Attention will be given to description of data, and to basic ideas such as sampling, chance levels and hypothesis testing. Furthermore, the question of how to design an experiment that might prove/disprove your theory will be discussed. The programme is rather ambitious, so students should prepare the assigned chapters before coming to class. In class, the material will be discussed and we will go into some of the exercises.
