Welcome to Utrecht Summer School I am delighted to present to you the programme of the 2010 Utrecht Summer School. Again this year, we will be offering students from all over the world a wide variety of academic summer courses on a wide range of subjects. The traditionally well-represented series of cultural and science courses has been expanded with courses in numerous other fields. For example, the number of social science courses and economics courses has increased considerably. We are pleased that our excellent cooperation with Hogeschool Utrecht (University of Applied Sciences) is yet again reflected in a number of summer courses. This year we will again be working together with a wide selection of partners whose names you can find on the cover of this booklet. Furthermore, we are extremely pleased with the outstanding collaboration with our international partners and the resulting course offering. I hope you will enjoy reading this booklet, which is bound to contain something to your liking. I look forward to seeing you in Utrecht this summer.

Prof. J.C. Stoof, PhD Rector Magnificus of Utrecht University

This year’s Summer School programme is enormously varied; we offer more than 100 courses in all topics. The Rector is absolutely right: the programme is bound to contain an interesting course for everyone. And if you are interested in more than one course, there are lots of possibilities this summer to make combinations. The choice is yours! In this year’s Summer School programme you will find a number of international combination courses that take place at different locations in Europe. Students can opt for a journey through European art in our course ‘History of Art: European Highlights’. In six weeks students will explore art in Europe and see the artworks with their own eyes in Florence, Berlin and Utrecht. Participants of the course “European Integration: The EU from West to East” will study the integration process in the European Union from the perspective from both Western European as Eastern European member states. What better place to explore the perspective of Eastern European member states than Estonia? All this is possible during Utrecht Summer School 2010! The place of action of our new courses in the field of entrepreneurship, statistics and education on the other hand will be Utrecht where outstanding lecturers will challenge you to explore the theme and increase your knowledge of the subject. We expect over 1700 students in Utrecht in the months of July and August. Parallel to the summer courses there will be a leisure programme all summer with cultural, sportive and social activities. We even organise the Utrecht Summer School Film Festival, with Dutch films (with English subtitles). If you would like to stay fit while in Utrecht you can buy a sport card that gives you unlimited access to the university’s sports centre Olympos. Get to know the city, the country and each other! On our website (www.utrechtsummerschool.nl) you can find much more information. Online registration is possible. In the meantime you can meet other students through our facebookgroup. We hope to see you this summer.

Holland The Dutch combine history and traditional culture with innovation, modernism and an international orientation. With the same ease that they have taken to the high-tech world, the Dutch are equally happy going for a quiet stroll along the historic canals that run through town. Holland, or the Netherlands, is a kingdom. Its official name is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It consists of the Netherlands itself and the six islands of Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles 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. Today the Netherlands is also called ’Holland‘, a name that is derived from the names of the two western coastal provinces, North and South Holland, that were the most developed and wealthiest parts of the country in the seventeenth century and 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

6

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, there is water everywhere, in the form of lakes, rivers and canals. Holland’s relatively small area of slightly over 41,000 square kilometres is home to over 16 million people. Society Dutch society is home to 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 non-hierarchical 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 city 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 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 65,000 of the inhabitants being students, Utrecht is a real student city. Several canals crisscross the city and encircle the city centre. The Dom tower is the focal point of the city: with a height of 112 meters, it offers a 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 where you can enjoy a drink or a meal looking over a canal lit by decorative lights framing the contours of the bridges. In terms of culture, Utrecht is a real festival city, with festivals like the Spring Dance Festival, the Holland Early Music Festival, The Holland Animation Festival and the Dutch Film Festival. When not hosting a festival, Utrecht is the stage for the ‘Cultural Sundays’ – cultural events inspired by a location, theme or particular art form.


Utrecht University Utrecht University is a research university comprising of seven faculties which collectively span the entire academic spectrum in teaching and research. Founded in 1636, the University is now a modern, leading institute enjoying a growing international reputation. In the Shanghai Ranking, Utrecht University ranks 1st in the Netherlands, 9th in Europe and 47th worldwide. Utrecht University offers a broad range of 46 undergraduate and 196 graduate programmes, the latter including many English-taught programmes. There are almost 30,000 students at Utrecht University and 8,500 members of staff. Every year, more than 2,000 international students and researchers stay in Utrecht for variable periods of time. Utrecht University is linked to the names of many prominent academics among whom Buys Ballot, Donders, Rudolf Magnus, Van Unnik and Freudenthal. The list also includes Nobel Prize Winners such as Gerard 't Hooft from the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy. More information: www.uu.nl/en

Hogeschool Utrecht University of Applied Sciences HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU) was founded in 1995 as a result of a merger of several institutions. The HU is the third largest university of applied sciences in the Netherlands and is funded by the state. It has over 37,500 students (including 1000 international students) with more than one hundred different nationalities. The HU offers a wide range of courses spread within nine principal themes. Most of the over 80 programmes of the HU lead to a bachelor’s degree, some lead to a master’s degree. Several programmes are taught in English. To prepare students for their future career, our international programmes have some unique aspects: • Competence-based education to provide excellent professional skills • Individual supervision and a limited numbers of students per group • International experience: Study Abroad • Work experience at international companies

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 into a broad selection of over 90 courses in virtually all disciplines Utrecht University is offering. In 2009 Utrecht Summer School attracted over 1500 students from over 75 different countries; with that it is the largest 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 at providing its participants with an unforgettable stay in Utrecht and the Netherlands. Therefore, parallel to the study programme a social programme has been set up including excursions, sports, social gatherings and festivities. Utrecht Summer School is a cooperation between Utrecht University and Hogeschool Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. More information: www.utrechtsummerschool.nl

All courses are geared towards the practical aspects of the disciplines and the teaching is competencebased with the emphasis on professional skills and work placements. More information: www.international.hu.nl

All accommodation is situated within easily accessible distances from various educational institutions. They are in the University Campus the Uithof, in the city centre of Utrecht or its suburbs. All rooms are fully furnished and decorated, and include crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, cleaning materials and bedding. The rooms are either single or double rooms with shared facilities. In your residence kitchen you can find everything you need to cook a nice (Dutch?) meal.

Social Programme Utrecht Summer School not only offers you a fine selection of interesting courses in all kind of disciplines, it also aims at giving the participants an unforgettable stay. Therefore we invite all students during the months July and August to an attractive social programme, including excursions, sports, social gatherings and festivities. To give you an impression; last year’s programme contained city trips through the Netherlands – for example to the Hague –, night canoeing through the canals of downtown Utrecht, a BBQ, beach volleyball- and soccer tournaments, a weekly social gathering, a pub quiz, (guided) trips to famous museums and an excursion to the Dutch dikes and delta works. And, every course starts with a city tour – including a climb up the Dom tower – to introduce and welcome you to Utrecht! The activities mentioned above will provide the perfect setting for you to meet international students from other Summer School courses, to get to know your classmates better and meet Dutch students as well!

This course offers an introduction to Europe, a continent of great diversity. Its countries and peoples each have their own cultures, religions, traditions and languages. This course aims to introduce you to the main challenges and opportunities facing the joint project aimed at political and economic integration in the European Union. Students will analyze topics such as the emergence and construction of national identity and culture; processes of globalization and internationalization, and their effects on local cultures; citizenship in a European context and different national approaches to social issues. They will also examine the structure and institutions of the European Union and learn how national cultures are affected by and react to supranational developments. The main venue for the course is Utrecht. The intensive two-week programme with lectures and seminar groups, group presentations and assignments, includes an excursion to the European Parliament and the famous Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels.

This course explores the main intellectual, cultural and political traditions of Europe. Lecturers in the fields of history, philosophy, religion, art and other fields in the humanities will introduce students to key issues in European civilization from its ancient origins in Greece and Rome to the present. What are the distinctive characteristics of European civilization? How did unique political concepts such as citizenship, human rights and democracy evolve? Which distinctive trajectories can one distinguish in the development of religions, fundamentalism, tolerance and the relation between church and state? How to explain the stunning contributions to literacy, scholarship and science? How did European nations cope with the challenges of totalitarianism, racism and the political ideologies of the twentieth century? How did Europe deal with questions of national identity, immigration and integration? Students will discuss these topics in small seminar groups and analyze a number key issues in small assignments.

This course introduces students to the various compelling challenges that European society faces at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Policy makers, politicians and academic specialists discuss the solutions that are being explored to cope with these issues, and explore how Europe will face the future. Among the many topics to be discussed are the economic crisis and the role of state governments; global warming, energy, sustainability and the environment; migration, immigration and integration; gender, ethnicity and identity; and the many global interconnections and dependencies of globalization, and the transAtlantic ties between the Old World and the New World. What is the European answer to these global questions? How can we define the European dream for the future?

This course will explore the question of Dutch identity by placing the history of the Netherlands and Dutch art in a wider European and transatlantic perspective. Furthermore, you will be introduced to the rich cultural traditions that the Netherlands developed from the Dutch Golden Age to the present day in such artistic fields as painting, literature, poetry and filmmaking. Lectures will discuss distinctive periodes in Dutch history such as the productive Golden Age of the 17th Century. You will explore Dutch traditions of literacy, cospomolitanism, tolerance and accommodation, and the challenges it met during periods of war and upheaval. Within the historical context of the preceding week, students will be introduced to the cultural expressions and traditions that support the Dutch in their claim to international fame as a cultural nation. Lectures will discuss Dutch architecture, literature, academic learning and famous painters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh and Mondrian.

Goddesses, Jagged Lines or Blank Surfaces: The Search for Truthfulness in Dutch Art of the 19th and 20th Century Utrecht University

‘Nice clouds,’ critics would say, ‘But really, it isn’t quite art with a capital A, is it?’ Until recently, Dutch Art of the Golden Age was seen as technically good, but not very interesting. It was just too realistic, where was the artistic imagination? What is the true meaning behind all these landscapes, seascapes, portraits and still lifes that look so real that you can feel the sea-breeze and smell the grapes? When you want to discover what is so special about Dutch Golden Age art, you will embark on a fascinating journey where nothing is what it seems: an innocent bouquet of flowers hides a forbidden religious message and a happy family, turns out to be a warning against an undisciplined lifestyle. Upon completion of this course you have become confident in recognising, discussing and analysing a modern Dutch artwork and sharing your ideas with your peers and ultimately, you will have gained a profound insight into the many layers of these seemingly realistic artworks, the true meaning of which critics do not agree about to this very day.

In the 19th and 20th century being able to paint a convincing image of a mythical goddess leaning against a broken column was no longer a guarantee for success. It is the period of the –isms, such as Impressionism, Cubism and Expressionism. But despite the obvious differences between these movements, each of them strove for the same thing: to create an art more truthful than ever before. Throughout this course, you will discover how Dutch artists, from architects and costume designers to painters and sculptors, strove for the elusive ideal of truthfulness. Upon completion, you will have seen many highlights from the 19th and 20th century, you will be able to recognise the main painters and distinguish different movements in Dutch art, you will have become confident in recognising, discussing and analysing a modern Dutch artwork and sharing your ideas with your peers and ultimately have gained a deeper understanding of the idea of modern art in general.

Experience the highlights of over 400 years of Dutch art! Focus on art of the Golden Age, the time of legendary painters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. Until recently, most art from this period was seen as technically good but just too realistic, where was the artists’ imagination? When you want to discover what is so special about Dutch Golden Age art, you will embark on a fascinating journey where nothing is what it seems. In the 19th and 20th century there was no longer a fixed ideal of excellence for artists to strive towards. It is the period of the –isms, such as Impressionism and Expressionism. But despite the obvious differences between the movements, each of them strove for the same thing: to create an art more truthful than ever before. Throughout this course, you will be encouraged to discover the various strategies Dutch artists used to attain this ideal of truthfulness.

Florence, originally founded by the Romans, was governed by the Medici family for centuries. Most of them had a passionate interest in painting, sculpture, architecture and literature. Still Florence keeps an exceptional artistic heritage which is a marvelous evidence of its aged culture. Florence is the most marked example of Renaissance cities in Italy. Nowhere else in Italy does one find this multitude of buildings and works of art from this period. Among the cultural highlights is the magnificent cathedral (Santa Maria del Fiore), churches that contain breathtaking frescocycli, renowned museums and impressive citypalaces and Palazzo Vecchio, the famous city hall. Apart from interesting lectures the summer school programme also includes many visits to leading museums.

The course will introduce Berlin’s outstanding art collections, with their wide range of masterpieces from late medieval times to the present day. We shall focus throughout on the particular circumstances that shaped the production and reception of German art, especially during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During this long period, the formation of a German nation state and the problematic notion of a German national identity became intimately connected to the question of a German style and artistic ‘expression’. A special focus will be given to the ‘Art of the two Germanys’ between 1945 and 1989. We shall explore Germany’s vibrant art history by focusing in depth on works by artists like Martin Schongauer and Albrecht Dürer.

In cooperation with Freie Universität Berlin (FUBiS)

Vermeer? Da Vinci? Both geniuses, most people would say today, both equally deserving to be printed on posters (and the occasional placemat) all over the world. Today, both Italian Renaissance art and Dutch Golden Age art have conquered their prime positions in the art history books. But in the 16th and 17th centuries, the ‘Northern’ style of painting was seen as very different from the ‘Southern’ one, even though artists from both traditions influenced each other, there were ongoing disputes about which style was the best one. The Utrecht Summer School offers an opportunity to travel back in time and experience the art from both traditions first hand, staying in two cities that played a pivotal part in their country’s art: Florence and Utrecht. Upon completion of the course, you will have seen some of the most breathtaking highlights of Italian and Dutch art in the many museums, cathedrals, cities and galleries that will be visited during this course.

Discover more than 1,000 years of European Art this summer by exploring two of the most exciting art cities in Northern Europe – Utrecht and Berlin. Learn about the Golden Age in the Netherlands and the many social, historical, religious and cultural factors that influenced art production during that time. Find out how life shaped art and how the arts shaped life in Utrecht during the 16th century. Then move on to Berlin and go back further in time to medieval times. Profit from Berlin’s rich cultural collections and learn about the varying circumstances that shaped the production and reception of German art from the Middle Ages through the twentyfirst century. The notions of a national identity and its connections to artistic expressions will be an important element of this course and introduce you to political art and the politics of art.

Spanish or Castilian (Español or Castellano) is a Romance language in the Ibero-Romance group that originated in northern Spain and gradually spread in the Kingdom of Castile, evolving into the principal language of government and trade in the Iberian peninsula. It was taken most notably to the Americas as well as to Africa and Asia Pacific with the expansion of the Spanish Empire between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Italian (Italiano) is a Romance language spoken by about 60 million people in Italy, and by a total of around 70 million in the world. In Switzerland, Italian is one of four official languages. It is also the official language of San Marino, as well as the primary language of Vatican City.

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.

Human language has been the result of some recent evolutionary developments. It is universally shared across the species and includes properties that are biologically isolated (structural dependency, discrete infinity, selfembedding, displaced reference, etc.). Language shows properties of complex design raising questions like: What’s the nature of language? When and why did it originate in the species? How did it evolve the way it did? 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 questions that will be addressed include: Which systems are uniquely human (species-specific) and uniquely linguistic (domainspecific)? Did core properties of human language evolve gradually and adaptively from gestural or vocal systems of animal communication? Or was their evolution saltational and exaptive? What was the primary function of language? Communication or an efficient way of organizing cognitive systems?

This course is meant as a basic introduction into the field of psycholinguistics. Topics covered will be syntactic and semantic processing (perception and production), aphasia, and first and second language acquisition. In this course the study of psychological mechanisms underlying language structure and language use will be introduced: Day 1 – Introduction. What is (psycho)linguistics, who are the psychos studying linguistics and why do they do it? Day 2 – First language acquisition. How come children learn the properties of their first language so quickly and effortlessly? Day 3 – Language production and processing. How do we go from the intended to spoken message? And the other way around – how do we process spoken/written language? Day 4- Language breakdown. How does brain damage disturb language (focus on aphasia)? Day 5 – Neuroimaging. How do we look for language inside a healthy brain?

Statistics for Experimental Linguists

In this course, students will be taught 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 complexity of sentence structure and sentence meaning. The theory accounts for the creativity of human language; the characteristic that makes human language unlike the communication system of any other animal. Topics covered will include phrase structure, complementation, case and thetatheory, and movement.

In this course, linguistic variation across human languages is studied from two comparative perspectives: a micro-comparative perspective and a macro-comparative one. In the first part of the course students are introduced into the field of macro variation (or language typology), the systematic study of the similarities and differences between the world’s more than 5000 natural languages. It searches for universal properties or systematic patterns of variation in morphological or syntactic aspects of languages, and to classify variation along genetic, areal or structural lines. The second part of the course focuses on the study of micro variation – the study of language systems that are very similar, such as closely related languages, or dialects of the same language. We will look at micro variation from a syntactic point of view, and discuss the relevance of phenomena such as syntactic dialect variation for linguistic theory.

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 of the Statistics book before coming to class. In class, the material will be discussed and we will go into some of the exercises.

This course focuses on the issue of discipline formation in science. Three meta theoretical concepts will be explored: demarcation, vocabularies and scientific practices. Discipline formation results when scientific practices emerge as authorized and authorizing professional activities with matching vocabularies, institutions and clear cut boundaries. In this course students are encouraged to bring their own subject material, for case study purposes. As an introduction, students will have lectures on the function of identification in scientific activity, the problem of (self)marginalization in discipline formation, and boundary work. During the second week, in addition to the regular program, students are enabled to attend lectures and workshops of the conference of the European Society for the History of the Human Sciences (ESHHS). Experts in the history of the social sciences will give keynote speeches. During the second week, course participants write a paper, to be presented on the last day of the conference, during a special workshop.

Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. Host populations have to adapt to migrants and their religion and culture, while migrants have to find their way in a new and sometimes aversive environment. Acceptance and adaptation have to be realized by migrants in spite of initial resistance, possible social exclusion and explicit political rejection by part of the host population. This course introduces students to basic sociological and social psychological theories and research on the reception and adaptation of migrants in European host countries. The approach is analytical and empirical and focuses on processes of group perception, stereotyping, group identification, political mobilization, economic and cultural integration and ethnic conflict.

This course introduces students to the manifestations and analysis of contemporary conflict in Europe (and elsewhere). It will be discussed whether present-day conflicts are different from classical war, both in terms of origin and the way they are conducted and eventually solved. Several, sometimes contradictory, analytical and theoretical approaches to contemporary conflict will be looked at. These vary from (Neo-)Malthusian approaches focusing on scarcity, approaches dealing with statesociety relations and governance or with issues of nationalism and identity, to political economies of violence and discursive approaches to conflict. In the second week the attention shifts from analysis to policy practice. Students will be exposed to recent European and international policy and practical developments in conflict management.

The UN Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010) promotes peace and human rights education. This summer school course builds on the ideas of the UN Decade to utilize peace-and human rights education to work towards a Culture of Peace. You as a student, a teacher, a social worker, a politician, civil servant or parent, will explore the potential of peace and human rights education to contribute to such a culture of peace, both as a content and as a methodology. This course will offer a mix of academic theory (knowledge and reflection) and practical applications (decision making exercises and action). We want to challenge you to develop your own body of knowledge and opinions which can help you to determine your position in your own situation. For, although the decade of a culture of peace is almost at its end, the idea of a culture of peace and human rights is still relevant: for politics, for education and for action! COU RSE DI R ECTOR

A major feature of the Dutch education system is the constitutional right of ‘freedom of education’. This freedom has resulted in a wide diversity of confessional and state schools with a great variety of pedagogical ideals and teaching concepts. Many parents choose a school for their child inspired by the ideas of Maria Montessori, Helen Parkhurst, Peter Petersen or Celestin Freinet. The most recent development is the educational concept of ‘het Nieuwe Leren’ (independent learning), which promotes education and pedagogy based on having confidence in children and giving them room to develop their full potential. In this approach, concepts like independence, responsibility for yourself and for others play an important role. In tutorials, lectures and workshops you will learn about reformatory education and the underlying theoretical models and philosophical ideas. You will also visit at least one Dutch primary school which is based upon a reformatory educational concept.

Education and Pedagogics

In the Netherlands, children with special educational needs (SEN) are increasingly being educated in mainstream school environments. Successful implementation of any inclusive policy in education is largely dependent on the willingness of teachers in mainstream schools and educators to support inclusive education. Some teachers find it difficult to deal with the changing classroom population. Although there is a growing recognition that teachers need special training to teach effectively in inclusive schools, less attention is paid to the influence of attitudes toward inclusive education. A historical perspective on inclusive education will be given, and we will focus on students’ own personal teaching practices related to inclusive education. The course is a mixture of theoretical plenary sessions, practical workgroups and at least one fieldtrip to an inclusive or special/exclusive school. In workgroups, activities are centred around the main question: What competencies do general education teachers and special education teachers need to be competent inclusive teachers?

Most studies and professions require a vast amount of cooperation. In their cooperation people frequently differ from opinion and hold different priorities. Although conflicts occur frequently, it is common for people to ignore them. At the same time conflicts also offer a chance for unexpected possibilities. In this way conflicts can also be great learning experiences. The aim of this course is to make you familiar with the backgrounds of human conflict behavior and to develop and practice basic conflict resolution and mediation skills. In mediation parties settle their own disputes with the assistance of a third neutral party, the mediator. During the course you will explore your conflict styles and develop and practice several communication and mediation skills; practice and skills are the main focus of this course. This course consists of two interrelated themes, conflict resolution and mediation. Both of which are crucial for a better understanding of third party intervention in conflicts.

This course gives you the opportunity to experience how you can communicate with today’s world in the most effective way. You produce film and edit footage, and you publish your materials on a self-constructed multimedia platform, Word-Press based. The real life integrated newsroom covers news and events taking place in and around Utrecht.

What are the challenges for a sustainable future? How can innovation address these challenges? How do we manage such innovation processes? In this summer school course at the Department of Innovation and Environmental Science at Utrecht University, we will analyse Dutch practices of innovation and governance for a sustainable future, such as (alternative) energy and water management technologies to protect the Low Countries against rising sea levels and other consequences of climate change. New technologies are important for a sustainable future, but sustainability problems and solutions are disputed, and implementation is not straightforward. Therefore, the course focuses on the diffusion and implementation processes of innovations, thus providing guiding principles for policy. In tutorials, the theoretical concepts will be applied to real-life problems. Excursions and field trips to energy and water management projects will be organised in order to experience the innovations and challenges in practice.

Introduction to Multilevel Analysis Utrecht University

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences

Social research often involves problems that investigate the relationship between individual and society. The general concept is that individuals interact with the social contexts to which they belong, meaning that individual persons are influenced by the social groups or contexts to which they belong, and that the properties of those groups are in turn influenced by the individuals who make up that group. Generally, the individuals and the social groups are conceptualized as a hierarchical system of individuals and groups, with individuals and groups defined at separate levels of this hierarchical system. The appropriate analysis technique for such a hierarchical system is multilevel analysis. The benefits of multilevel analysis are discussed both in theory as with empirical examples.

In this course a variety of analysis of variance (ANOVA) models is discussed, starting with a simple ANOVA but also including factorial designs and interaction effects, the inclusion of control variables, i.e., covariates (ANCOVA), and designs with within factors (repeated measures) and mixed betweenwithin designs. The theory is presented in the mornings (lectures) and the afternoons are reserved for applications using both SPSS and R (computer lab). The focus is not on the mathematics behind the statistical models but on applications in social (or other) sciences. Special attention will be paid for the problem of multiple testing and related issues like inflated Type I errors, alpha protection methods and subsequent reductions in power. On the last day of this course, an alternative for the classical ANOVA approach and subsequent post-hoc testing is presented. A non-technical introduction into Bayesian model selection for the evaluation of informative hypotheses is provided.

On the one hand, cities are economic engines and centres of innovation and culture. They attract people to live, work and study. They are where new ideas emerge, and where trends in culture, lifestyle and entertainment begin. On the other hand, major cities also have concentrations of poverty, social problems, unemployment as well as pollution, congestion and issues of affordability. While the benefits of urban life are plentiful, these challenges continue to grow. Politicians, planners, activists and private businesses all have various solutions to these urban problems. The aim of this two week course is to familiarise students with the major issues confronting cities of the 21st century and the various ways in which these challenges are being addressed. We will examine a wide variety of urban issues: housing, poverty, transport, planning, regeneration, immigration, gentrification, culture, city marketing and economic growth. COU RSE DI R ECTOR

Introduction to Educational Measurement CITO

Applied Multivariate Analysis Utrecht University Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences

This course provides an introduction to educational measurement. The course is centred around the three main fields of application for educational measurement: exams, surveys, and the monitoring of progress. The purpose of exams is to take decisions on individual students; whereas the purpose of a survey is to compare subpopulations. Monitoring progress on the other hand aims at tracking a student through time. Each of these fields of application requires its own methodological approach. A fourth topic that is covered is the setting of performance standards as it applies regardless of the purpose. The elements of educational measurement that will be treated are Classical Test Theory, Item Response Theory (IRT), estimation and evaluation of IRT models, equating of tests, multilevel regression, application of plausible values, modelling of growth and standard setting.

It then provides a transfer of this theory into a practical approach of business situations, to strengthen the participants’ personal international competences. The business world is in great and growing demand for managers who do not only have knowledge and experiences in their own field or subject, but also understand the logistical processes that make things actually work. Students will focus on topics like purchasing, warehouse and distribution management, to take that to a higher level in business process integration and logistic strategy. In this very intensive course students are promised hard work and realtime experiences. In international teams they focus on the most important aspects of the supply chain, and will experience how their decisions influence the outcome of the primary process. COU RSE DI R ECTOR

Entrepreneurship is all about creating value, not only in terms of financial returns, but also about improving social and environmental aspects.

However most marketing courses focus on the larger firms and the marketing strategies seem not to be applicable to smaller entrepreneurial firms with smaller budgets.

The circulation in the atmosphere and in the oceans is at the heart of the climate machine. Geophysical fluid dynamics, dealing with the properties of flow in a rotating system, forms the core of the summer school. A systematic treatment will be presented, and numerous exercises will help to master the material. Then there will be a series of lectures on more specialised topics like chemical cycles in the climate system and their interaction with radiation, glaciers and climate change, coastal processes, ocean circulation and palaeoclimates, etc. Students will participate in small research projects on these topics and will report on the results.

The fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology depend on materials with critical dimensions in the nanometre range. Examples include organic macromolecules, inorganic catalyst particles, and size-quantized metal and semiconductor structures. The properties of these materials depend on the size and shape of the nanoparticles and their ordering in 2-D and 3-D structures. Nanomaterials find applications in a wide range of fields such as device technology (nanophotonics, solar energy conversion, optoelectronics), medicine (sensors, labelling) and chemical synthesis (catalysis). In the course students will be introduced to the exciting interdisciplinary field of nanoscience, its chemical and physical aspects, and its many applications.The school will combine theory (lectures, tutorials) with experiment, laboratory tours and a visit to an industrial research laboratory.

This course focuses on information-infrastructures for chain wide co-operation of independent organizations and professionals in a specific social sector, e.g. criminal law enforcement, health care, identity management or education. This chain co-operation surpasses the complexities and problems of logistic chains and confronts us with the challenges of safe and reliable communication of critical and often confidential data at a national or international scale. You will discover why so many big information projects fail or produce poor and unreliable results. We will look at the use of biometrics in the criminal law enforcement chain to be able to reliably exchange criminal verdicts and records and to combat identity fraud in this chain. You are invited to do some internet research on a chain-informationinfrastructure in your own country and to find out what approaches are better suited to the adversities of large-scale public-private chain co-operation.

Reliable modelling of flow and transport through the vadose zone is extremely important since it serves as a buffer and filter for contaminants. The HYDRUS software that simulates numerically water and solute movement has received increasing attention over the last decade because of its flexibility and versatility. In this summer school underlying principles of HYDRUS and PH1 are described by HYDRUS developers and it brings opportunity to discuss future modelling needs directly with developers. To understand reactive transport process in complex porous media, it is necessary to understand processes at microscopic (pore) scale, and then try to describe their manifestation at macroscopic (core) scale and field scale. Due to limitations in measurements, an alternative ways for transferring pore-scale information to larger scale and establishing relationships among them is to use pore-scale modelling. Porenetwork models have been widely used to explore a variety of phenomena related to multiphase and mass transport in porous media. COU RSE DI R ECTOR

Lifestyle and Health

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

In healthcare there is a paradigm shift from acute disease towards chronic disease. Persons with a chronic disease or with a disease due to biological aging, want to know how to live with the disease. They want to maintain independent. Several innovative technology are developed to support chronic ill persons or older adults in self management or self care. These are for instant sensor technology, robotics, e-health, serious gaming and human interactions. In addition, safety, privacy and ethical aspects should also be addressed.

Epidemiology of infectious diseases is increasingly important in our society and outbreaks in human and animal populations are almost continuously present in the news. In farm animals we have recently notably seen discussions on avian influenza, bluetongue virus, Q-fever and several other zoonotic agents. The problems involved in control and prevention of such infections call for a population-level approach, i.e. for an epidemiological analysis and evidence based practice. This course offers a sound introduction into that field. It includes both instruction and practical training of basic epidemiological principles, based on disease data in horses, dogs, cattle, swine, poultry, and wildlife, and can be viewed as a general introduction to veterinary epidemiology. Students will also be exposed to state of the art epidemiological infectious disease research in discussion meetings with researchers. We offer an attractive diverse program for students interested in a challenging mix of infectious disease research, population dynamics and the control and prevention of animal diseases.

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. These evaluations are carried out once these therapies have been used widely in daily practice. Assessment of safety and risk management of different drug therapies is done in the framework of observational epidemiological studies (proof of ‘safety’, proof of ‘effectiveness’). This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drugs ‘efficacy’. The course will cover key issues in pharmacoepidemiologic and drug safety research. Special topics include databases and molecular pharmacoepidemiology. All course teachers have extended expertise in the design and conduct of pharmacoepidemiologic studies.

Medicines are among the most regulated products in society. From the earliest pre-clinical stages onward, policy makers want to foster the development of safe, effective and affordable medicines for patients in need of pharmacotherapy. When a drug reaches the market, it is the beginning of a process of complex interactions between patients, prescribers, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and governments. Furthermore, from a global perspective, the reality is that two billion people do not have access to essential medicines. The inequity in access to medicines is still a defining characteristic of the global pharmaceutical market place. This course will cover these issues from a scientific, regulatory, public health and international policy perspective. As a collaborator on this course, WHO will provide faculty for several of the sessions.

In order to fully appreciate risks that arise from industrial activities and environmental emissions, it is essential to quantify chemical agents that are emitted into general environment. In risk assessment, this is achieved through what is known as ‘exposure assessment’. In this course, participants will learn to relate environmental conditions to actual exposures experienced by human populations and ecosystems. They will learn how to directly measure exposure levels, how to decide on the best way to obtain representative exposure measurements, and how to analyse data that is obtained during exposure measurement surveys. Participants will also be introduced to fundamentals of exposure modelling, which allow investigators to infer exposure levels in absence of direct measurements of exposures. The course includes exercises that will allow students to assess exposures in different environments.

This course’s main theme is the Chemical Safety Assessment as required under REACH. The backbone of the course is the regulatory background of REACH and the risk assessment chain from emission and distribution of chemicals to exposure of man and ecosystems and finally, in the risk characterization, to effects. Exposure Scenarios and risk management measures are specifically considered as well as the collection, evaluation and selection of exposure and effects data, including alternative data and integrated testing strategies.

Risk is an integral part of life. We take, perceive, ignore and experience risks every day. The Utrecht University Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS) investigates risks to human health. Our research focuses on risks related to chemical, biological, and physics agents in the environment, the work place and the food chain. During this twoweek residential summer school students will be introduced to the three approaches used in risk assessment: exposure assessment, toxicology (the science of poisons) and epidemiology (the science of public health). Students attend a series of lecture courses at an advanced undergraduate level. Students also participate in exercises, case studies and practical sessions under the guidance of a range of staff.

Biobusiness Academic Biomedical Centre (UU/UMC Utrecht) In collaboration with AMC and VUmc

Two years ago, a unique summer school is launched for PhDs and postdocs to learn more about business in the Life Sciences. PhDstudents in their final year and posdocs are planning the next step in their career. In these times, when postdoc positions in research centres are limited and biotechnology companies are experiencing a rapid growth, more scientists are looking for interesting jobs in the business field. Most young academics however are not yet very well informed about the basic principles of Life Science business, the different types of companies, and the various job opportunities. In this interactive two week course you will learn the basics and backgrounds of the biomedical industry and are introduced to several international companies in the region through organised site visits. Renowned guest speakers are giving lectures and will discuss business cases in individual contact with the participants. COU RSE DI R ECTOR
