Advanced modules

Further on in the Expedition programma you will take an advanced module of 5 EC. These are the advanced modules to choose from.

The Francophone Maghreb

Why does French play a central role in the Maghreb? What is the historical background for Maghreb being one of the biggest French speaking area? What are the challenges of multilingualism today? This course will explore the links between language, identity, religion and post colonialism in the Maghreb.

Art, Ethics and Biotechnology

Contemporary biotechnological practices (such as genetic modification) that involve manipulation of living beings present a challenge to traditional notions of nature and the human body. This is particularly true of synthetic biology, a form of bioengineering which includes both the design and construction of new biological parts, devices, and systems and the re-designing of existing natural biological systems.

Animals in the Humanities

Recently, the traditional claim of human exceptionalism -that we are essentially and categorically different from all other animals- has been questioned by representatives of post humanist thinking. These scholars question the agency of the autonomous, self-willed human and emphasize shared vulnerability and interdependence instead. What are the consequences of this shift in our understanding of our relationship with animals?

WikiLogic: How the Internet affects the way we think

There is a growing debate on how the use of digital media (in particular the Internet) is affect-ing the way in which we learn, think, communicate and collaborate. This course explores the way in which changing media landscapes affect our epistemic practices, that is, our ways of organizing, evaluating, and communicating our beliefs and desires. The course has six key themes: Logos (writing), Gutenborgs (printing press), Google (Internet), Bits (digital information), Wikis (sharing), and World 2.0 (virtual ontology).

The Middle East in the 20th Century: local actors and great power politics

This module looks at the way the great powers of Europe (and later the USA) have interacted with the nation states of the Middle East in the Twentieth Century. The goal of this module is to achieve an understanding of the dynamics of the interaction between nation-states and external powers in the Middle East.
