Prof. dr. Guus Extra

Responding to increasing linguistic diversity in multicultural societies:

The Netherlands in international comparative perspectives


Derived from a comparative focus on the European Union and the English-dominant world of the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and South-Africa, five different perspectives will be offered on the proposed theme:

  • Phenomenological perspectives: the public and political discourse on diversity
  • Demolinguistic perspectives: collecting and analyzing empirical data on language diversity
  • Educational perspectives: education in the national language and in languages other than the national language
  • Economic perspectives: the economic value of multilingual education and the costs of a monolingual mindset
  • Dutch abroad: the status of Nederlanders and Nederlands in English-dominant countries (focus on Australia)


A concise electronic reading list will be sent to all participants in advance.

23 June 2017, 14.00-17.00.
Sweelinckzaal, Drift 21, Utrecht University.
