University of Groningen: An Unofficial History

This illustrated English-language history of the University of Groningen covers the years from its foundation in 1614 to 2018. It is structured around a chronological overview of the major events and significant people in the university’s life placed in the context of Dutch national history. Its final chapter deals with current debates and changes at the university. The book emerged from a project based on an MA course in the English Department’s Writing, Editing and Mediating course. It is on sale on all of Amazon’s sites.
