Website Manet van Montfrans

Manetvanmontfrans

Sinds kort staat de website van UvA-gastonderzoeker Manet van Montfrans online op manetvanmontfrans.nl. Naast een blog, biedt de website een overzicht van de publicaties van van Montfrans, inclusief links naar online teksten.

Behalve over Marcel Proust – mede dankzij haar rol bij de Nederlandse Marcel Proust Vereniging – en over Georges Perec – waarop zij eerst promoveerde (1999) en daarna het essay Georges Perec, een gebruiksaanwijzing publiceerde (2003) – geeft van Montfrans lezingen en publiceert zij artikelen over diverse hedendaagse Franse auteurs waaronder nobelprijs Patrick Modiano. In 2014 publiceerde van Montfrans een selectie uit deze artikelen onder de titel Steltlopen door de tijd. Over geheugen en geschiedenis in de moderne Franse literatuur, dat – net als de genoemde werken over Perec – beschikbaar is bij de UvA-bibliotheek.

Giovanni Contini on the Italian Resistance – Lectures in Amsterdam

Giovanni ContiniAfter graduating from the University of Florence, Giovanni Contini Bonacossi has been research fellow at the King’s College Research Center (Cambridge) and the University of California (Los Angeles), Professor of Contemporary History at the Università di Roma, La Sapienza, and Director of the Audiovisual Archives at the Soprintendenza Archivistica della Toscana. He is currently the President of the AISO Associazione Italiana di Storia Orale.

Prof. Contini is ACCESS EUROPE Visiting Scholar from 9 April through 9 May, 2016. ACCESS EUROPE (Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies), «a cooperation of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) […] is a platform for research, education and public debate about Europe, the European Union and its member states». The UvA faculties of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Law, Humanities and Economics participate in the platform.

Next to a PhD masterclass to be held at the Huizinga Institute, prof. Contini will be giving the following two lectures:

Partisans, peasants, fascists (1943-1945): Memories of the Italian Civil War (Thursday 21 April 2016, 16-17:00 at the UvA P.C. Hoofthuis, room 3.01, Spuistraat 134): illustrating the use of oral history methods, the lecture «will analyze the memories of the Italian civil war […] describing how the actual experience of the war’s protagonists [namely peasants] differed from what has been told in the Fascist and anti-Fascist rhetoric».

Controversies in resistance (Friday 22 April 2016, 15-17:00 at the NIOD Nederlands Instituut voor Oorlogsdocumentatie, Herengracht 380), will again address the use of oral history and how this helped showing «that the often trumpeted unanimity of Resistance groups is in large part an embellishment of the past. A case in point is the divergent stance taken by some groups with regard to the use of terrorist attacks in German-controlled cities». NIOD-researcher and co-speaker Bas von Benda-Beckmann «will connect Contini’s reflections to broader concerns in the study of Second World War resistance to German occupation».

For more (practical) information, please visit ACCESS EUROPE’s website (where both Contini’s photo and the quotes above comes from).

Geen Romaanse talen, wél bibliotheek P.C. Hoofthuis: IHLIA LGBT Heritage tentoonstelling

logo-ihlia2014-kleur
IHLIA LGBT Heritage (voorheen Internationaal Homo/Lesbisch Informatiecentrum en archief) is dé LGBT-erfgoedorganisatie van Nederland. De steeds groeiende IHLIA collecties, nu bijna veertig jaar oud, illustreren de geschiedenis, het dagelijks leven en de cultuur van de LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) gemeenschap met een verscheidenheid aan documenten – zowel gedrukt (boeken, periodieken, rapporten, scripties) als audiovisueel (documentaires, films) – die van IHLIA LGBT Heritage een informatiecentrum van het grootste belang maken voor Gender- en LGBT-studies wereldwijd.

In 1978, de geboorte van het Dokumentatiecentrum Homostudies (‘Homodok’ in de volksmond) – dat later IHLIA zou worden – was nauw verbonden met de Universiteit van Amsterdam. Om deze langdurige relatie te vieren, en om de wetenschappelijke relevantie van de IHLIA collecties onder de aandacht te brengen van UvA-medewerkers en –studenten, wordt een kleine selectie uit IHLIA LGBT Heritage nu tentoongesteld in de UvA-Bibliotheek P.C. Hoofthuis: boeken die verwijzen naar Whisper their Love: Vintage Lesbian Pulp Covers (expositie nu te zien op het IHLIA-plein in de Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, 6e verdieping) en diverse werken, die de variatie en betekenis van de IHLIA collecties illustreren. 17 maart t/m 1 mei 2016.

Locatie en openingstijden UvA-Bibliotheek P.C. Hoofthuis: hier.
