Inaugural address Yvonne Brehmer: What is successful aging?
September 13, Professor Yvonne Brehmer will present her inaugural speech on successful aging and how her previous and planned research is related to it. So far, Brehmers research has mainly focused on basic experimental memory research, which includes age-comparative studies with healthy older adults. Important questions are: What is successful aging? How can successful aging be reached by each and every individual? How much is aging successfully a challenge for the individual and/or society?
Historical study on catholic girls' lycea relevant to the Dutch debate on article 23 of the Constitution)
Fons Vitae in Amsterdam, Mater Dei in Nijmegen and the Theresialyceum in Tilburg, three Catholic girls' lycea, are described in detail for the period 1914-1968 in Marieke Smit’s historical dissertation. Central question: how did Catholic, female and intellectual education relate to each other at these schools? The desire to found the lycea on their own philosophical basis and to form good citizens did not contradict. In this sense, the dissertation is relevant to the current Dutch education debate on article 23 of the Constitution, according to Smit in ‘In deugd en wijsheid groeien’ (Growing in virtue and wisdom), which she will defend at Tilburg University, on September 18.
