January 22, Platform for Postcolonial Readings, 1-3 EC | In recent years, ‘protest’ has become one of the keywords in describing and fashioning forms of resistance that addresses the nexus of social, political and economic injustice locally and globally – from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street, from Gezi Park to Euromaidan, anti-corruption protests in Russia to #FeesMustFall in South Africa. In all these events and movements, re-actualisations of the past and contestations of present-day memory politics have played a prominent role. As this feature deserves more attention, particularly in a comparative frame, this meeting of the Platform for Postcolonial Readings seeks to address the mentioned processes at the interfaces of postcolonial and post-socialist studies and at the interstices of (former) ‘East’ and ‘West’.

Seminar, 3 EC, starting November 1 | Technological developments inform the ways information travels through media, turn archives into ‘dynarchives,’ and set knowledge cultures in motion. Such developments foreground the performativity of practices of transmission and the materiality of mediation; moreover, they point to movement and embodiment as key to both transmission and mediation. This new centrality of movement, motion and gesture opens up a transdisciplinary terrain for research and development, and new possibilities for cross-sector collaborations between the humanities, sciences and the arts, as well as with partners from within industry, care and education.
