Courses on location

Literature and Medicine on location

In 2014 we started with a course of one week given on location. In many novels in the field of literature and medicine the location of the novel plays an important role. One of the finest examples is The magic Mountain by Thomas Mann. The first course we developed was Beauty, disease and decay in Venice. After that we started a second course in Vienna. The courses are a mixture of class (discussing the novels), walks through the city and visits to interesting places.

These courses were initially developed for the Higher Education of the Elderly in Amsterdam, but they were soon made also available for the students of the Honour Program of both Amsterdam Universities. Now, in 2023, this activity has spread over 11 European cities.

At this moment, courses are available in the following cities:

Lübeck (Thomas Mann 1: Buddenbrooks)
Zürich and Davos (Thomas Mann 2: The magic Mountain)
Polling and München: (Thomas Mann 3: Dr. Faustus)
Salzburg (The suffering of Thomas Bernhard)

Expected in 2024: Rouen (Flaubert and De Maupassant)
Expected in 2025: London

These courses are in Dutch, but on demand, we can also make these courses available in English. Please contact us for more information!
