Last week, the winners of the Teacher Awards were announced at the annual Education Fair of Utrecht University. Out of seventeen proposed candidates, dr. Saskia Stevens was one of the three nominees. Unfortunately she did not win the award, but we would still like to congratulate her on this excellent achievement. For us, she is definitely the winner! Why do we think this? You can see that by watching this video we made.READ MORE

On 23 March, the University will organise the Humanities Student Conference. We are pleased to invite both students and academics to participate in Utrecht University’s Humanities Student Conference “Conceptual Crossroads: Rethinking Paradigms of Borders and Migration”. During this conference, we would like to critically reflect on epistemic and ontological characteristics of the concepts of migration and borders in order to deconstruct them, broaden their implications and search for new ways of engaging with them. Our selection of these two concepts as dialectically intertwined comes from an understanding of their centrality, interrelatedness and their potential to create new insights on the matter. The conference will offer a platform to various academics and MA/PhD students from different disciplines within the Humanities, who are affiliated with the theme of migration.

On the 5th of April the Career Committee will organize a career excursion to The Hague!

We’ll be taking a look at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finances, the Red Cross and the Senate! We’ll get tours from historians who can tell us exactly what their jobs involve and how they ended up with their wonderful jobs. The entire day will cost you only 5 euros, lunch included! If this seems like something you’re interested in send an email before the 3rd of April to email@example.com and let us know if you would like to go to Ecnomic Affairs and Finances or the Red Cross organisation!
