|| (2015-09-17) Test Subjects of Imperial Japan|
In this paper I attempt to answer what the effect was that Japanese language policies had on the Taiwanese people and what the effects were on the post-colonial period. To answer this, I examine why the Taiwanese people were taught Japanese, how this was put into effect and how it affected them, even after Japan gave Taiwan up as a colony.

Haften, Lisanne van
With its maxim wen yi zai dao 文以載道 (literature to convey the Way) Chinese literature is characterized by its emphasis on morality. Morality is a heterogeneously diverse set of codes and norms that derives from multiple sources, such as Confucian and Buddhism. Looking at Buddhism, this already started spreading towards China as early as the Han dynasty, and has over time gained a firm foothold in the Chinese culture and literature. This thesis will focus on the function of Buddhism in on....................

In 1646, Curaçao and New Netherland were united under Petrus Stuyvesant as director-general of both colonies. It was the culmination of several years of planning to improve the poor situation in these territories. The aim was to provide Curaçao with food produced in New Netherland and cut the costs of the unprofitable island. The connection functioned poorly as a lack of shipping capacity made it impossible to supply Curaçao as planned, and food shortages remained common.

Sena, Wildan Sena
Held on 18-24 April 1955, the Bandung Conference became a watershed in international and diplomatic history. Described by President Sukarno of Indonesia as “the first intercontinental conference of colored peoples in the history of mankind”, it marked what Nehru described as “the political emergence of over half the world’s population in world affairs”. Many scholars have attempted to discuss the history and legacy of this conference, yet there is still no comprehensive studies that pr....................

Hoeff, A.M.C. van der
In ELT, sociocultural knowledge and pragmatic skills have recently gained more attention, as students need to be prepared for real-life intercultural communication in the target language and should be made aware of the intercultural context and consequences of intercultural communication. Although culture has been included in curricula such as described in the CEFR, as suggested by the Dutch National Institute for Curriculum Development (SLO), and in various frameworks for conceptualizing 21st c....................

Tinders’ Romantic and sexual interactions|
It has become reality that relationships formed in cyberspace are actualized in the flesh. Due to the popular mobile dating app Tinder, the negative stigma of online dating seems to be gone. The app is bringing the geographical and physical attraction element back into online dating, reducing the stigma of online dating. The focus is on answering this question: How does physical and social nearness in Tinder shape romantic and sexual interactions? First the novelty of Tinder in the discourse of ....................

In deze masterscriptie heb ik met behulp van Jérôme Meizoz’ posture-theorie Heleen van Royens schrijversidentiteit in beeld gebracht, om deze identiteit vervolgens binnen het debat rondom modern auteurschap te plaatsen. Dit debat heb ik vanwege de omvang van mijn onderzoek niet in zijn geheel getracht te omvatten, maar aan de hand van enkele mijns inziens relevante bronnen deels uiteengezet. Zo maakte ik gebruik van Andrew Bennetts beschouwing van het auteurschap door de jaren heen en toonde....................
