Nő az esély - tapasztalatátadás és szemléletformálás

Az Egyenlő Bánásmód Hatóság (EBH) TÁMOP-5.5.5 programjának 2012. november 15-i budapesti szakmai tanácskozásán a hátrányos megkülönböztetésben érintett csoportok képviselői és civilek osztották meg egymással tapasztalataikat. Az egész napos rendezvény középpontjában – a társadalomban betöltött különböző szerepeiket tekintve – a nők esélyegyenlőségének kérdésköre állt. (2012.11.16.)

Throughout the course, we will investigate problems surrounding national cinemas and canons in conjunction with issues of self-representation, self-articulation and gender. The above questions closely correlate with the topics of postcolonial theory, thus during the first part of the semester we will confront the central theoretical concepts of the postcolonial tradition. During the second part of the course, through select case studies the group will investigate how problems of cinematic representation and gender correlate with the issues of visual (de)colonialization.

The human body, its organs, tissues and cells are increasingly used for therapy, research and for invention. In the field of stem cell research and assisted reproduction the human body is to fulfill various scientific and commercial purposes ranging from essential life-saving treatments to aesthetic enhancement.

Since the late 1980s, the term ‘public sphere’ became the key notion in the art theories dealing with the practices of “public art.” Today, in our “actually existing democracy” the public sphere is not produced as a single authoritative and universal space but instead as a space in which various positions compete for recognition; it exists as a fragmented sphere in which multiple local spaces spread over diverse collectivities; it consist of publics and counter publics.

The aim of the course is to investigate theoretical and methodological problems related to the knowledge production in post-disciplinary age. At the core of the course is the close examination of the concept of interdisciplinarity and its different interpretations, as well as terminological and conceptual differences between inter-, multi- and transdisciplinarity.

Divided into two thematic threads, this course aims to provide students with some of the key concepts and discussions in the field of popular culture and subculture studies. The overview is organized around labor and consumption...
