Going Dutch


Students enjoying the sun while waiting to hop on the row boats (just steps away from Rembrandt’s birthplace coincidentally on his 407th birthday!).

The students have acclimated to life in Leiden.  This week each student is narrowing their anthropological focus in preparation for the final ethnography project.  Dr. Peg has created great opportunities for the students to apply some of their new tools as anthropologists:  participatory observation and interviewing.  Below you’ll see some photos of their cultural explorations.


We biked to the North Sea to compare Dutch beaches to the US beaches.


Here Peg is explaining the unique landscape of Dutch polders on our way to visit a “volkstuin” (peoples garden).


Nicole and Lydia are well-prepared to interview a Dutch graphic designer and Dutch chef.
