Essay assignment = online
for Saskia's students

Find the essay assignment under the course description. Reading for next meeting (see programme, also under course descr.): Laura Mulvey

Civil Society Lab

Dear students, We have investigated the possibility of healing the wounds of a society damaged by crimes against humanity. For this, we have investigated the ICC and its aim of convicting perpetrators after a fair trail. We have investigated the ICC's importance and, also, its problems. Our research raises, I believe, two further questions: 1.) What about alternative possibilities of justice apart from corrective justice? In other words, is it possible to achieve justice without punishing people? This will be the topic of next week. We will take the documentary film 'The look of silence' as our case study. Preparation for class: read the film review about 'The look of silence' that I have uploaded on Student Portal. 2.) If it is so that the ICC is haunted by Africa's colonial past, should then African countries reject the ICC and, instead, endeavor to build their own unified culture? This question concerns the topic of (post-)colonialism. We will investigate this topic in block 2 of the semester. Please do not forget to hand in the concept of your article next week! (email: [email protected]) Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Best wishes, Thomas

Alleen tijd voor werk, studie en in de auto zitten

"Je begint aan een toekomst met een goed vooruitzicht. Wanneer je door de crisis je baan verliest kom je er vast wel bovenop, en misschien wel beter dan voorheen. Niet wachten op een baan dichter bij, maar gaan voor zekerheid.

Stilstand is daarnaast achteruitgang en de honger naar persoonlijke ontwikkeling is ook nooit gestild, al is het maar omdat studeren gewoon kan. Het gaat allemaal wel ten koste van wat andere zaken, maar je kunt toch niet alles hebben?"

Drieluik voor de tentoonstelling 'Storing', in de vorm van een groot formaat foto aan de wand, een boek en een videoclip. Ieder platform raakt een aspect van mogelijke gevolgen die kunnen ontstaan wanneer men gewillig aan onze maatschappelijke verwachtingen probeert te voldoen.
