Oproep voor bijdragen

Cross Over, het tweejaarlijkse platform voor de interdisciplinaire en transculturele letterkundige neerlandistiek, overschreed in 2015 na colloquia afwisselend in Nederland en België voor het eerst de Nederlandse taalgrens.

In Medias Res. A Tribute to Mieke Bal

Symposium * Book Launch * Exhibition, organized by ASCA and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the special symposium ASCA and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam are organizing as a tribute to Mieke Bal. This symposium also marks Mieke Bal’s official departure from the University of Amsterdam.

In Medias Res, ‘in the midst of the action’, seems a particularly appropriate way to describe Mieke’s career. Her unstoppable energy, curiosity and creativity drove her across borders between academic disciplines to invent interdisciplinary methodologies, found new academic programs and inspire generations of young scholars. Even after her official retirement, she remains more active than ever, continuing her scholarly work but also having great success as an artist, curator and filmmaker. At the symposium, colleagues from the wide range of fields Mieke has intervened in will highlight the influence of her work. read on…
