Multatuli Lecture 2013
 Multatuli Lecture 2013On Tuesday 21 May, Ian Buruma spoke on 'Asia as Myth: the East in the Western Imagination', Tuesday 21 May in the Promotion Hall of the University Halls (in Dutch).

To understand a different culture, simply accumulating information is not enough. An awareness of the stereotypes we use to process this information is at least of equal importance. We often only notice the things we expect to notice. Of course, the better we know a culture, the easier it is to see through the deception projected by such stereotypes: we all know that Holland is more than cloggs, windmills and tulips. When it comes to less familiar countries, however, it is often not so easy to distinguish clearly between fact and fiction. Asian cultures have evoked many different stereotypes since Herodotus. How do these western fantasies distort our view of the real China?

Ian Buruma was educated in Holland and Japan, where he studied history, Chinese literature, and Japanese cinema. He has worked in journalism and held several editorial and academic positions. In 2003 he became Luce Professor of Democracy, Human Rights, and Journalism at Bard College, New York.
