On Monday March 23, 2015 the symposium ‘Bodies, Borders, Archives: Spaces of Knowledge Contestation and Affective Transactions’, organized by Dr. Marta Zarzycka (UU), takes place at Utrecht University.

This one-day symposium investigates a variety of spaces—historical archives, online image repositories, geographical zones marked by conflict—that are marked by more or less visible and formalized lines of separation, difference, and division. Along and across these lines, the contestation of established fields of knowledge and formation of new ones take place simultaneously with affective transactions between people, objects, and histories.

The aim of the symposium is to trace how feminist/queer/postcolonial theories account for these processes. Speakers are Professor Ann Cvetkovich (University of Texas at Austin), Dr. Marta Zarzycka (Utrecht University) and Dr. Luisa Gandolfo (University of Aberdeen).

The symposium takes place from 9.30 to 13 hrs at Drift 21 (room 0.05) in Utrecht. Attendance is free but registration is appreciated: M.J.Zarzycka@uu.nl
