Lecture and workshop, 2 EC, March 27-31 | The lecture examines the ways in which colonial politics of respectability, aimed at shaping ideal Curaçaoan male and female behavior, formed a response to racist representations of black sexuality and character in Curaçaoan society. Workshop: Researchers are often confronted with the fact that certain key information is not in written form but stored in people’s memories. This is particularly the case in societies where written information represents colonial or other dominant views while alternative views are silenced. In this workshop, participants will look at oral history research findings, issues around reliability, transcription, interpretation and analysis.

CFP, PhD workshop June 9, 2017 | We’d like to invite all NICA PhD members for our ‘Work in Progress’ meeting on Friday, June 9, 2017. The idea is simply for PhD researchers to share a sample of their own work in progress, with joint discussion and feedback to follow. Feel free to present work that’s genuinely in process: fledgling, under way, unfinished, partial, fragmentary, patchy, stuck.
