Congratulations are in order!
Stefaan Vervoort, research master student in VAMA (Visual Arts, Media & Architecture; 2009-11), has been awarded a PhD fellowship by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) for his research proposal ‘Model as Sculpture. Architectural representations in the realm of the visual arts: 1970-2000′. The research is co-promoted by Prof. Dr. Wouter Davidts (VU University) and Prof. Dr. Maarten Delbeke (Ghent University; Leiden University). The doctoral research will be carried out at Ghent University and at VU University, starting from 1 October 2011.
After some delay, the Student Papers section is back online. To start of, you can check out “The Grounds of Autonomy”, an article written by VAMA student Joana Meroz for the recent The Autonomy Project Newspaper. During her participation in the Autonomy Project summer school, Meroz started to question how we define ‘autonomy’ and the implications thereof. In her article, Meroz reveals some of those presuppositions and examines whether there are alternative ways of considering autonomy.
More articles and papers by VAMA students will be added over the summer. In general, these papers were written for VAMA and other courses but some have also been published in journals. Please note that all papers are posted here for educational purposes only.

Summer’s approaching and the school year is slowly drawing to an end – which leaves little time for a busy events calendar. So, in June, we’re taking it slow. Not to say that there aren’t some interesting events to look forward to.
Studievereniging Kitsch is wrapping up the school year with two final events. First of all, there’s the Eindejaarsavond: a final official members’ meeting followed by a reception. It takes place on June 15th in room 12A-39 and will start at 18:00 with a tasty buffet. As a final event, Kitsch is organizing an excursion to the Arnhem Mode Biënnale on June 22nd. There’s only room for 15 people, who will benefit from a reduced entrance fee of 10/15 euro (members/non-members), including a guided tour. If you want to join, contact the Kitsch staff quickly!
For more information, visit the Kitsch website.
Also, we want to remind you of the PMK Graduate Symposium taking place on June 17th in Nijmegen. During this symposium, students in Modern and Contemporary Art from different universities will present their MA theses, either as finished products or as works in progress. Speakers are Daria Tuminas (RUL), Marijke Goeting (RU), Mariana Bufill (RUL), Michelle Franke (RU), Mark van Gend (UU) and our own VAMA-students Daniël van der Poel and Stefaan Vervoort. It’s a great opportunity to engage with other people’s research and to find some inspiration and guidance for your own!
