Participation in Other Programmes and Applied Research

History :: Literature and Cultural Artefacts :: Philosophy and Social Theories

The Scenario for the Humanities Research Programme tries to map the highly complex situation of the humanities. It does this by pointing out the various interconnections between the humanities, and society and the historical processes that underlie them. In doing so the programme intends to serve as a handle for future research and education policy, both with respect to fundamental research, and socio-cultural and political issues. Projects involved in this programme are:
  • "Gendering Cyberspace" (Mischa Peters),
  • "Questions of Corporality in the Age of Post-Humanism" (dr. r.c. hoogland),
  • "Gender and the New Scenarios for the Humanities" (Prof. Dr. Rosi Braidotti).
  • Applied Research

Literature and Cultural Artefacts

dr. rosemarie buikema
representation and policy making. the dutch government has felt the need to think about the power of representation as an instrument for social and cultural change. age, gender and ethnicity are increasingly thought of not so much as self-evident and inevitable aspects of the human condition, but as historical and social constructions. unexamined taken-for-grantedness helps to explain why ageism, sexism and racism is by no means always obvious to all affected by it. the analysis of representations of gender, ethnicity and age in public information and popular culture may help to encourage an awareness at this point both at the side of policy makers and citizens.
