Guest speaker at NOISE Summer School 2016

Excited to have been invited to contribute to the NOISE Summer School of 2016, organized by the Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies. Check out the call for participants. Sounds like it’s going to be great:

The registration for the NOISE Summer School 2016 is now open!

Would you like to explore how gender and postcolonial perspectives can be fruitfully combined for an emancipatory re-imagination of Europe as inherently culturally diverse? Do you want to know more about how axes of difference including gender, race, religion, class and generation intersect in mediatized European discourses and lived experiences? Are you curious to learn more about the feminization of migration?Would you like to join us in mobilizing feminist media studies of migration to rethink Europeanness from below? Are you interested in deconstructing the label of the migrant by re-considering who counts as a migrant and who does not?

Are you struggling to make sense of the so-called “rape-refugees” discourse that became en vogue after mass sexual assaults in Cologne, Germany and elsewhere? Worrying about the misuse of feminism by right-wing anti-immigrant politicians and journalists? Join us in studying the vexed power relations between media and migration.

Join the 2016 NOISE Summer School!
