  • Utopiaby Claire MacDonald

    Intellect Books Ltd 2015; US$ 44.00

    In a room in the middle of nowhere, a man and a woman dream up spectacular worlds: a decaying city, a lush and crumbling garden, a train journey across a drowned landscape. Darkly humorous, absurd and surreal, these are plays for a theatre in which time and space, character and setting are as uncertain as the maps this man and this woman draw. A co-founder... more...

  • Kiekertak en Klotterbookeby Maarten Doorman

    Amsterdam University Press 2004; US$ 10.50

    De afgelopen decennia hebben zich grote veranderingen voltrokken in het voortgezet en universitair onderwijs.

Wat vinden wij belangrijk om over te dragen, welke geschiedenis... more...
