Culturele apartheid in leergangen Nederlands als vreemde taal

  • Raemdonck, Anne Van
This article looks at the way culture is represented in 3 commonly used course books of Dutch as a foreign language. According to the author, everyday culture of the regions where Dutch is spoken, is presented from a nationalistic point of view, i.e. it is limited to either cultural, historical and social aspects of The Netherlands or cultural, historical and social aspects of the Flemish Community in Belgium. The existence of the other region or country where the same language is spoken is not only ignored but at times even portrayed wrongfully which has its logically negative effect upon the students" interpretation and can lead to prejudice and the teachers using those course books.

‘HIJ’ VERSUS ‘ZIJ’: CONTRASTEN, PARALLELLEN EN BEELDSPRAAK IN LAIA FÀBREGAS’ LANDEN (2010), ‘HIM’ VERSUS ‘HER’: CONTRASTS, PARALLELS AND IMAGERY IN LAIA FÀBREGAS’ LANDEN (2010)

  • van Raemdonck, Anne
In this article I shall show how deftly Fàbregas creates in her novel Landen two separate but thematically connected stories and leads them to a very satisfying and totally unexpected ending. Landen is an intriguing psychological novel where the two main characters, Him and Her, tell, in alternating chapters, their own story in the first person. They only meet once, in the first chapter, where the Him character dies. I shall first look at the main characters’ life experiences, i.e. the car accident in which the Her character loses her parents and the experiences of the Him character as an emigrant and later as a widower. I shall then describe the contrasting attitudes they each adopt and look at parallels between both narratives. Finally, I shall give an interpretation of the imagery as a link that also enhances the contrast between the characters., In this article I shall show how deftly Fàbregas creates in her novel Landen two separate but thematically connected stories and leads them to a very satisfying and totally unexpected ending.
