Master Class with Nirmal Puwar

Master Class with Nirmal Puwar

Friday, December 4th, 2015
9.30 am – 1 pm, Campus Etterbeek

The Machteld de Metsenaere lecture is followed by a master class, which offers interested graduate students the opportunity to explore the notion of carrying more in depth together with Nirmal Puwar.

The master class is open to doctoral students and advanced MA students. Participation is free of charge, but conditional upon application (see below). Participation to the master class requires attending the public lecture, reading the assigned readings, and preparing a brief (10 minutes) presentation of one’s research project. This presentation should focus on (feminist) methodological issues and embodiment, and might reflect on how an understanding of “carrying” plays out in one’s own research.

PhD students from any Flemish university receive one credit (1 ECTS) upon completion of the master class. Other PhD students receive, on completion, a ‘proof of successful participation’, which can be recognized by their home PhD programme. MA students can apply for registration on an individual basis and receive ‘proof of successful participation’.

How to apply?
Send us a brief statement of interest by October 31, 2015.

The statement should include a presentation of your research, with special emphasis on methodological and epistemological issues, as well as present questions that you would like to see addressed during the master class. The statement should not exceed 1000 words, and should be sent to

You will be notified by November 10 about your participation to the master class. A brief reading list will be available from that date onwards.

The public lecture and master class are sponsored by: Doctoral School for Human Sciences,  Expertisecentrum Gender, Diversiteit & Intersectionaliteit
