Problemen en crisis van de opgezweepte Westerse technologische cultuur  [cached]
E. Schuurman
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1993, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v58i3.712
Abstract: Western culture is in its kernel a technological culture. This culture is speeded up by technology and is characterized by a lot of problems, such as pollution and labour problems, the growing distance between developed and underdeveloped countries and the one-sidedness in the normative orientation. This culture is in a crisis because there is no agreement about the cause of and the way to solve the problems. At the bottom of the spiritual-historical background of Western culture the 'hidden' ideology of technology is active. The contents of this ideology implies that man pretends to be an autonomous master of reality, that he can therefore manipulate everything, that he can solve all old and new problems by scientific-technological control, and that he can guarantee the progress of material welfare, ideology as a driving force ensures a ‘technological paradise ', in which the perspective of eternity has been lost. The ideology of technology is strengthened by the ideology of science and economy. Together they are the cause of cultural problems.

Abstract: ‘The Fight for Amsterdam’. A New Approach in Research into the NSB The main characteristics of the members of the Dutch Nazi-movement (Nationaal- Socialistische Beweging, NSB) are constructed by historians De Jong and De Jonge. Both labeled the members of the NSB as ‘opportunistic’ and ‘isolated’. Up until now, that image has remained unchallenged. Inspired by Aristotle Kallis, Roger Griffin and Robert Paxton, we analyzed the behavior and social position of members of the NSB in Amsterdam during the Second World War in a new way. By focusing on their actions instead of on ideology, their isolated position can be brought into doubt along with opportunism as the main motivational factor. It is more likely that a combination of idealism, opportunism and social networks led to membership of the NSB. The interaction pattern differed from person to person and per political, economic or social level of communication. The results of this research show that Dutch political history and identity is complex and a lot of research still has to be done in this field.
Het gezag van 'mijnheer de voorzitter' in de parlementaire cultuur van de negentiende eeuw  [cached]

BMGN : Low Countries Historical Review , 2005,
Abstract: The authority of ‘Mr. Speaker’ in nineteenth-century Dutch parliamentary culture The contemporary authority of the Speaker of the Second Chamber is obvious. His presence, for example, is repeatedly evoked with the enchanting mantra ‘Mister Speaker’ [‘Mijnheer de voorzitter’], even though the Speaker hardly ever has anything to say concerning content. In the nineteenth century — the so-called ‘age of parliamentarianism’ — presidential authority was not a matter of course and was an important subject of political debate that lasted for decades. This article investigates the struggle for authority through the words and deeds of representatives, Speakers and political commentators. This quest for exemplary chairmanship resulted in a number of parliamentary rules, rituals and (invented) traditions. These will prove that, far from being a matter of course, the authority of ‘Mr. Speaker’ was in fact a wily construction.
De Slavernij is onze geschiedenis (niet). Over de discursieve strijd om de betekenis van de ntr- televisieserie De Slavernij  [cached]

Abstract: Slavery is (Not) Our History: On the Public Debate and Divergent Meanings of theNTR Television Series Slavery This article discusses the debates that followed the broadcasting of Dutch NTR-television series Slavery (De Slavernij) in 2011. While the series was aimed at informing the general public about this silenced part of Dutch history, the subsequent debates on the series revealed fault lines in Dutch society with regard to ideas on how to know and represent slavery adequately. Although most participants, in line of a positivist epistemology, made appeals to historical facts, these debates clearly demonstrated how knowledge and representations of slavery are positioned in a social and academic field that is always characterised by power relations.

Abstract: Die onderwerp, aan die skrywer hiervan opgedra om voor ’n samekoms van G.T.V.-lede te behandel, is baie wyd. Persone m et vakkennis sal wel weet w atter m agte aan 't w erk is op elke terrein van die teologiese wetenskap. Ons kan in 'n ori n- terende oorsig hoogstens volstaan m et enkele hooftrekke sonder om selfs daarm ee die terrein te dek. Dippel, w at ’n deeglike studie gemaak het van die kerk en wêreld in ’n krisis, het hom oor die terreinoorsiening soos volg uitgelaat: De bezeten wereld van nu w ordt beheerscht door tal van krachten en machten, die er bovengronds en ondergronds werken. Wie heeft er een volledig beeld van, waar- van de juistheid aantoonbaar is?”

De Afrikaanse roman en de westerse lezer: probleemschets en gevalstudie
J. Vermeulen
Afrika Focus , 1986,
Abstract: African literature, like any other literature remote in space or time, can be approached in two different ways. We can read it from our own point of view and try to appreciate it with our own literary standards. We can also try to read it as it was experienced and appreciated by its immediate audience, which means by the African public at the time of publication. Reactions given by a group of Dutch-speaking readers on a novel by E. Dongala clearly illustrate that the second approach is hardly achievable, however attractive it may seem. So we have to accept that every reading of an African literary work implies a serious degree of creative treason.
‘Zou de wereldbol een beetje aan het leeglopen zijn?’ Herman de Coninck over het Afrikaans en Afrikaner maatschappij, cultuur en politiek

Abstract: In the institutional context of literature in Flanders Herman de Coninck (1944–97) was an important player (or “actor”). The author is well known as a poet, a literary critic and editor of the Dutch Granta-like magazine Nieuw Wereldtijdschrift (NWT). Academics and essayists have paid much critical attention to de Coninck’s poetics and aesthetic views. In a recent anthology of Flemish poetry since the sixties, Hotel New Flandres (2008), he is called an innovative “paradigmatic poet” in the poetry system of Flanders. Much less known is his place in and relationship to the field of Afrikaans literature. Daniel Hugo published two anthologies with poetry of de Coninck in Afrikaans and Antjie Krog was invited by the Flemish editor to participate in NWT. Later on, these essays were rewritten and brought together in Krog’s Country of My Skull. Reading prose and poetry by de Coninck and focusing on references to South Africa, we can study his perspective on Afrikaans (language and literature), his points of view on social and political developments in the post-apartheid era. The purpose of this article is to present documentary material to illustrate and comment on de Coninck’s ideas on literature, language and society. This commentary on ideological and aesthetic opinions can form the basis for further discursive and institutional research with regard to the presence in and the image building of South Africa in the works by a canonized Flemish writer.
