Racial Orders, Racist Borders

Call for Papers: Sixth Annual ACGS Conference, 17-18 October 2019, University of Amsterdam. | Around the world, racist discourses, attitudes, and practices have moved from the fringes into the mainstream, putting core democratic values under pressure. Familiar racial orders have resurfaced and reinforced racist borders, both metaphorical and material. The sixth annual conference of the Amsterdam Centre for Globalisation Studies (ACGS) invites papers that examine how forms, discourses and practices of racism have materialized in various institutional contexts. | Please submit an abstract (max. 250-300 words) and a short bio (max. 100 words) by 15 May 2019 to acgs-fgw@uva.nl.

Sites of Memory – Performance Research seminar on the colonial and slavery history of Amsterdam 

Sites of Memory – Emerging Memory is a theatrical boat trip about the colonial and slavery history of Amsterdam. Spoken word artists, dancers and visual artists work together with UvA students, bringing history to live with narratives and performances on board of the boat and on shore. The performance is a mix of past and presence, of what we know and would rather forget. The performance will take place between the 20th of June and 7th of July and will be part of Amsterdam Roots Festival. NICA Research Master Students are invited to contribute to this seminar from April 29th through the end of May.
