Cold landings in the low lands

(Folia) Internationalisation! There is nothing the UvA likes to put on its brochures and policy plans as much as ‘curiosity without borders’ or ‘international classrooms’ – but how does our institution treat scholars from abroad, once lured in? Not too bad, it appears – as long as you pick up the language in a few months, and don’t expect too much warmth from colleagues. ‘Maybe the Dutch never get so close to each other themselves.’
