Decolonizing The Mind: The Case Of The Netherlands, Sandew Hira Jan 2012

Decolonizing The Mind: The Case Of The Netherlands, Sandew Hira

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In a militant context, the author examines certain dominant historical narratives regarding slavery and abolition produced and disseminated in the Dutch university and Dutch governmental institutions. He denounces their ideological and non-scientific approaches and in particular their strong tendency to understate or deny the oppressive character of slavery and the responsibility of Dutch ruling classes in its promotion and in mystifying the historical factors that explain abolition.


Slavery, Colonialism And Their Legacy In The Eurocentric University: The Case Of Britain And The Netherlands, Stephen Small Jan 2012

Slavery, Colonialism And Their Legacy In The Eurocentric University: The Case Of Britain And The Netherlands, Stephen Small

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Drawing inspiration from the critique by Patricia Hill Collins of the “Eurocentric, masculinist knowledge-validation process,” the author examines various ways in which universities, both in Britain and the U.S., have long suppressed critical inquiry into the history of empire, slavery and the slave trade. Parallel to this critique, he examines museums and other memorial sites devoted to slavery in Britain and the U.S., including a small number of initiatives that challenge hegemonic accounts and draw attention to the agency and the resistance of the enslaved. He further draws attention to initiatives within academic institutions in the U.S ...


Danishness, Nordic Amnesia And Immigrant Museums, Lia Paula Rodrigues Jan 2011

Danishness, Nordic Amnesia And Immigrant Museums, Lia Paula Rodrigues

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Museums’ images and narratives play an active role in the construction of collective memories. Since collective memories are integral to the politics of social and group identity, most of the controversy surrounding museums’ representational practices depart from the question of who “owns” memory and what form of remembrance ought to be presented (Prosise 2003). Through an exploration of the Danish Immigration Museum’s website, in this article the author discusses the dynamics existent between DIM’s representational practices and its politics of exhibiting other cultures. In order to render intelligible such dynamics, the politics of remembrance (of particular cultural elements ...


Representation Of Africa And The African Diaspora In European Museums, Artwell Cain Jan 2011

Representation Of Africa And The African Diaspora In European Museums, Artwell Cain

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Museums in Europe have a tradition of marginalizing the image and narrative of persons from the African Diaspora. This is often evident in the frequency of appearances and the quality of these scarce productions. Another point of interest is the manner in which these productions are presented. On the one hand, several questions arise regarding the representation of the African after the abolishment of chattel slavery right up to this present age of emancipation. Who gathers and presents these cultural artifacts? Which criteria are applied during the gathering and production of these presentations? Which sorts of museums are inclined to ...


Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel Jan 2010

Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

A closer look at the Muhammad cartoon crisis illuminates some of the key issues that were, and continue to be, at stake for the various actors in the public contestations over the legitimate place of Muslims (and the Islamic tradition) in Danish society. Using a conceptual framework developed by Axel Honneth, I suggest in this article that the cartoon crisis is part of an ongoing struggle for recognition in Denmark, through which the terms by which Muslims residing in Denmark are recognized as legitimate citizens/residents of Danish society are negotiated—and on which Muslims may recognize the demands of ...


Slavery-Era Disclosure And Atlantic Commerce, Keith R. Allen, Jelmer Vos Jan 2008

Slavery-Era Disclosure And Atlantic Commerce, Keith R. Allen, Jelmer Vos

History Faculty Publications

Explores the connections between greater Atlantic Ocean commerce and those northern European businesses that invested in and profited from the slave trade, from the 16th century to 1888, the year that Brazil outlawed slavery - the last country in the Americas to do so. Presents the results of an in-depth case study of the predecessors of the Dutch bank ABN AMRO regarding their financial involvement in the Atlantic slave trade and its extensive commercial network in the Western Hemisphere, which was centered on the Americas.


Black Skin, White Masks Revisited: Contemporary Post-Colonial Dilemmas In The Netherlands, France, And Belgium, Eric Mielants Jun 2007

Black Skin, White Masks Revisited: Contemporary Post-Colonial Dilemmas In The Netherlands, France, And Belgium, Eric Mielants

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Several problems beset the immigrant communities and academic scholarship in Belgium, France, and the Netherlands. The current politicization of higher education--who gets tenure or governmental financial support for what kind of social science research--results in timid criticism of existing public policies. The greatly differential integration models used in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France have resulted in different ways of collecting data and analyzing the 'other.' This article addresses how divergent discourses about the 'other' have been constructed over time: according to the French assimilationist model, ethnic minorities do not (officially) 'exist'; the Netherlands, until recently, embraced a 'tolerant' multi-cultural model ...

God’S Scribe: The Historiographical Art Of Galbert Of Bruges, Jeff Rider Dec 2000

God’S Scribe: The Historiographical Art Of Galbert Of Bruges, Jeff Rider

Jeff Rider

Galbert of Bruges's De multro, traditione, et occisione gloriosi Karoli comitis Flandriarum (The Murder of Charles the Good) has been studied extensively over the last hundred years. Considered one of the most important and original works of medieval historiography, the De multro is an eyewitness account of the assassination of Charles the Good, Count of Flanders, in 1127 and of the ensuing civil war. It is written in the form of a journal, the only work of its kind from Europe in the twelfth century, and provides a continuous, detailed account of events in Flanders from March 1127 to ...

De Multro, Traditione Et Occisione Gloriosi Karoli Comitis Flandriarum, Galbert Bruges Dec 1993

De Multro, Traditione Et Occisione Gloriosi Karoli Comitis Flandriarum, Galbert Bruges

Jeff Rider

Rider's edition is the first to be based on representatives of both the Multrum's manuscript traditions since the Bollandists' heavily emended seventeenth-century edition. It offers the first complete and accurate critical apparatus for the text including all the variants of the existing manuscripts and early editions. It also takes into account emendations suggested by scholars since the mid-nineteenth century (Köpke, Pirenne, Thomas and Ross). Readers are thus provided with all the surviving textual evidence and may evaluate for themselves the editor's decisions. Rider's text also indicates, for the first time, the original divisions of the Multrum ...
