Studium Generale | Lectures and discussion
Certainly for the international University of Maastricht it is important to consider the effects of Anglicization on other languages, on the nature of knowledge, on the status of a language as an academic language, on the design and quality of education and learning, and national and local cultural identity. For some it is a necessity to keep up with the international academic world, for others too much is lost. Jensen and De Swaan give their views on the subject in a short speech, after which they enter into a discussion with each other and the public.
This program is organized in conjunction with the international Integrated Content and Language in Higher Education (ICLHE) conference that will take place from 18 to 21 October in Maastricht.
