News from the Faculty of Social Sciences

 

Lecture: Unbuilding Gender: Trans* Anarchitectures in and Beyond the Work of Gordon Matta Clark

Open talk by Jack Halberstam, Honorary Doctor at the Faculty of Social Sciences

The talk will proceed by way of a theory of transgender embodiment, a survey of anarchitectural theories and practices from the 1970’s and the articulation of queer anarchitectural concepts of the body in space. If feminist and queer and trans* debates in the 1980s and 1990s asked whether bodies were born a certain way or made into “men” and “women,” in the last few decades the emphasis has shifted in both biopolitical and architectural directions. We can now speak in terms of an architectural turn in the study of gender and it is this turn that my talk explores.

Time: Monday, December 10th - 10:00-12:00
Location: Lux Nedre, Helgonavägen 3D, Lund

Information Meeting about Extension of Student Residence Permits in Sweden

We welcome you to an information meeting about extensions of student residence permits.  As you know, residence permit applications are handled completely by the Swedish Migration Agency and not by Lund University. However, we have seen that some of our current students have had their extension applications rejected by the Swedish Migration Agency for reasons that could have been avoided. Therefore, we want you to attend this information meeting so that you can be as prepared as possible to make a successful application.  We will offer several different sessions. Students in Helsingborg are welcome to attend our meeting at Campus Helsingborg on Wednesday, December 5, at 4 pm. For students based elsewhere, we will hold three information meetings in Lund during Thursday, December 6, at 3 pm and 5 pm respectively, and on Friday, December 7, at 4 pm.

Please register for the time slot that you prefer in the registration form. Click here to register!

Lecture: Free and Equal? Human Rights Day

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute is hosting an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN. Join this in-depth dialogue around identity, religion, and ethnicity in cooperation with Open Skåne, Lund Cathedral and Lund municipality. Together we will commemorate Human Rights Day with discussion, music, and drama. "The aim is to bring a diverse group of people together to have a thoughtful and respectful discussion around the differences that continue to keep us apart, to explore those frictions with courage and explore areas of agreement. War, death and destruction, caused partly by religious and ethnic hatred, was what encouraged the nations to together adopt this declaration in 1948. We convene this discussion because we believe solution-oriented dialogue can prevent conflict and divisions and in the end advance human rights," says Morten Kjaerum, director of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute.

Time: Monday, December 10th - 17:00-19:00
Location: Lund Cathedral Forum (Domkyrkoforum)

Seminar: The Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar

Rohingya Muslims are a race of people who have their own language and culture. The Muslims currently living in Myamar, a predominately Bhuddist country suffer systemic discrimination by the authorities who claim they are illegal immigrants from their neighbouring country, Bangladesh. Since 2012, tensions between the two communities led to riots and a mass exodus of tens of thousands from their home to displacement camps. The UN describes this displacement as 'the world's fastest growing refugee crisis'. In conjunction with Amnesty International Student's Group - Rohingya, Jus Humanis invites you to this panel discussion where members will take a look at their history, the discrimination, and discuss potential ways forward. Before or at the event, you must become a member of either organization.

Time: Saturday, December 14th, 2018 - 17:00 – 18:45
Location: Pufendorf Salen, Tryckeriet, Faculty of Law, Lund.
