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.
PhD Workshop, June 15, 2018 | Please join us for our annual ‘PhD Work in Progress’ meeting on Friday, June 15, 15:00-17:00, at the Oudemanhuispoort (room E1.08) in Amsterdam. Everyone’s welcome! Our PhD fellows Tingting Hui, Paris Cameron-Gardos, and David Gauthier will share samples of their current work in progress, with joint discussion (and drinks) to follow.
Lecture and masterclass, June 6 and 7, 2018, 2 EC | In this lecture and masterclass, we reflect upon the meaning of decolonization in Caribbean contexts where political sovereignty is not the anticipated nor desired outcome. As we consider bitter contests over the etiology of same-sex desire in the region and the consistent framing of gender transgression and same sex desire as colonial imposition, we explore the forms of political maneuver that make desire the terrain for proxy debates about sovereignty, freedom, and decolonial futures.
CFP, deadline May 30, 2018 | For the first issue of Soapbox, a graduate journal for cultural analysis, we invite submissions that explore listening as a critical practice. With this topic, we aim to bring together accounts of listening as both a method and object of analysis, including everyday practices and new modes of research that articulate who or what can listen and who or what can be heard.
