  • Maternal Sacrifice in Jewish Culture: Rethinking Sacrifice from a Maternal Perspective in Religion, Art, and Culture

    The phrase “maternal sacrifice” combines two complex terms entangled in an even more complex dynamic.

James Watts distinguishes between “narrative traditions about killing people”, oriented t...

  • Gender&Diversity seminar: Presentation by prof.dr. Sonja Boon

    Archival research necessarily involves a certain amount of speculation; inevitably there are gaps in the archival record.

  • Edited collection on LGBTIQ+ migration on, from and to the African continent

While as an event the ‘scramble for Africa’ lasted less than a century, its legacies can be seen in many c...
