GSG Public Lecture by Paulin Hountondji: Moralising God? - Religions and Politics in Africa Today
Donderdag 05 December 2019 15:00 - 16:30

This public lecture is hosted by the CRG 'Politics, Governance and Law in Africa' at the African Studies Centre Leiden. It is part of the Paulin Hountondji Tour initiated by the Globalisation Studies Groningen (GSG) programme at the University of Groningen, the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development (PCF) and the University of Münster. Paulin Hountondji is one of the most prominent African philosophers of the last fifty years. With his sharp and argumentative style of writing and with his outspoken position on the tasks of philosophising in Africa he has made friends and enemies. Most famous is his devastating critique of so-called ‘ethnophilosophy’ that takes African philosophy to be the collective worldviews of African peoples. He wrote his dissertation in Paris with Althusser and Derrida, and his book Philosophie africaine: critique de l'ethnophilosophie (Paris, Maspero 1976) (African philosophy, Myth and Reality, Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1983) was awarded the Herskovits Prize, and was selected as one of the 100 best African books of the 20th century; he was also awarded a Prince Claus prize and Mohamed El Fasi prize.

Marlene Dumas houdt 48ste Huizingalezing
Vrijdag 06 December 2019 20:00 - 21:30

Op vrijdag 6 december houdt beeldend kunstenaar Marlene Dumas de 48ste Huizingalezing. In de Pieterskerk in Leiden zal Dumas een rede houden met als titel ‘Het Onverantwoordelijke Gebaar - of ga terug naar waar jij vandaan komt’. Dumas’ lezing gaat over gedachten en verschijnselen die zich opdringen wanneer gesproken wordt over beeldende kunst: begrippen zoals oorsprong, cultuur, vrijheid en censuur. En over de onontkoombare relatie tussen beeld en woord. Marlene Dumas (1953) wordt beschouwd als een van meest toonaangevende beeldend kunstenaars van deze tijd. Na haar opleiding aan de Universiteit van Kaapstad (B.A. Schone Kunsten, 1972 -1975) studeerde zij aan de Ateliers ’63 in Haarlem. Sindsdien woont en werkt zij in Amsterdam. Internationale bekendheid verwierf Dumas met haar vernieuwing van het geschilderde portret in ‘close up’ en de uitbeelding van de menselijke figuur. Zij speelt met de meerduidigheid van het beeld en de rol van de beschouwer. Op verschillende continenten zijn solotentoonstellingen te zien geweest: in 2008 in New York (MoMA) en in 2014 in Amsterdam (Stedelijk Museum). In 2014 verscheen ook een hernieuwde uitgave van haar publicatie Sweet Nothings. Notes and Texts: een tekstbundel over haar rol als kunstenaar en die van de kunst in het algemeen.

CRG Book Seminar Series: Why Animals Matter & The Emotional Lives of Animals
Woensdag 11 December 2019 16:00 - 17:00

This seminar series is organised by the CRG Trans-species perspectives on African Studies. The foundations of the initiative to start the Collaborative Research Group ‘Trans-species perspectives on African Studies’ are the scientific advances in animal sentience and animal cognition that show that humans and animals do not differ in kind but in degree. Following from this is the CRG’s suggestion that ‘as animals are like us’ they should be considered part of ‘the social’ and included in our social sciences research and theorizing. Whatever we think and theorize about humans now must be extended to include animals as well. This also holds for African Studies. But what kind of ‘scientific evidence’ are we actually talking about? In a series of seminars the convenor of the CRG, Dr. Harry Wels, will discuss three books that present the scientific evidence for animal sentience and cognition.
