NICA Core Course, 6 EC, November-December 2018 | Offered by Murat Aydemir. In this course, we will revisit the main genealogies and methodologies of Cultural Studies in relation to current developments, exploring the following five areas of contestation: conjuncture, politics, reality, interdisciplinarity, and culture. How did Cultural Studies start out? What can it now be?
NICA Core Course, 6 EC, Amsterdam | April-May 2019 | Offered by Prof. dr Yolande Jansen. This course looks at the intersection of decolonial studies and normative political philosophy, and tries to address them from a relatively integrated perspective. We bring together both fields in a systematic way by testing normative theories of global justice and human rights in political philosophy against the works of liberalism’s critics from a decolonial or critical theoretical perspective.
May 22 | For the third time, Humanities Rally is organizing a Night of Protest. As in 2014 and 2015 we will come together because unfortunately we still face the same problems. There are still cutbacks, different studies are being combined and the workload among teachers is too high. Room for choice disappears, lecturers are being fired and the representative advisory bodies can’t do anything about it. Invite all your friends and co-worker to come to Oudemanhuispoort on May 22 at 19:00h for a Night of Protest!
Exhibition, June 1 and 2 | How can analysis take shape? The many different artefacts collected in Thinking Through Things together answer this question. As projects accompanying the theses of eleven rMA Cultural Analysis students from the University of Amsterdam, these artworks, images and objects are each products of individual thought processes, labour and archives: research in practice. Heterogeneous in both subject matter and form, the exhibition includes video essays, textiles, performance poetry, visual works, sculpture and photography — on topics as diverse as astrology, alt-right camp, smart cities, Islam Nusantara and drone cinematography.
