The Future of the Soviet Past: Can ‘Doing History’ Further Reconciliation in Russia?

What are the prospects for reconciliation when a state denies, marginalizes, or appropriates the narrative regarding a history of repression? In conjunction with the end of the Soviet era and the global ascent of the human rights discourse, observers and Gulag survivors alike expected that the nation’s history of repression would be more fully acknowledged and redressed. This proved inaccurate.

Professor Memory, History and Transitional Justice Nanci Adler draws attention to post-Soviet Russia’s ambivalent attitude toward its Stalinist past, and reflects on how to move beyond current impasses. NB. This lecture will be in English.

Lectures by prominent scientists at the FGw (the faculty of humanities)

The faculty of Humanities (FGw) at the UvA is a university faculty in the classical sense of the word, with a broad spectrum of specialisms. The faculty is located in the centre of the city and, figuratively speaking, in the centre of society. Its scientists work closely together with a number of cultural and social organizations and companies, and they often take part in debates on current affairs. Last summer, at the initiative of professors emeriti Marita Mathijsen and Selma Leydesdorff, ten prominent professors from various disciplines within Humanities gave short online lectures for interested parties.

Following this successful series – and while we are all still housebound – SPUI25 and the ‘Illustere School’ of the FGw will join forces this spring to shine a light on the beautiful and surprising richness of the FGw. From the 18th of January, eleven scientists will give a weekly 30-minute online lecture about a topic within their expertise. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. professors emeriti Marita Mathijsen and Aafke Hulk will moderate the lectures and the Q&A that follows. Afterwards, all these lectures will appear on the ‘Retrospect‘ page of the and on the YouTube-channel of SPUI25.

The Faculty of Humanities (FGw) was established in 1997, when the faculties of Modern and Classical Languages, Philosophy and Theology came together. The roughly seven thousand students and 1400 staff members are occupied with all disciplines of humanities, from modern and classical languages, history, the arts, archaeology, religious studies and philosophy to new media, digital humanities and art conservation and restoration.

Psychedelische middelen en media-machinaties

In 1969 schreef filosoof Marshall McLuhan dat de interesse in psychedelica indertijd te maken had met het ontwikkelen van ‘empathie met de ons binnendringende elektronische omgeving’. De hedendaagse ‘psychedelische renaissance’ wordt geleid door experimenten in de therapeutische werking van geestverruimende middelen.

Kennis maakt naakt. Over bomen (en mensen) in het paradijs

Alle culturen kennen de levensboom, symbool van continuïteit en vergankelijkheid, van de lijn en de cyclus die samen het leven vormen. Maar het Bijbelse scheppingsverhaal zet daar nog een boom naast, die van kennis van goed en kwaad, waar de mens bovendien niet van mag eten. Hoogleraar Hebreeuws en Joodse studies Irene Zwiep legt uit hoe dat precies zit.
