The Max Weber Programme Blog

The EUI Postdoc Blog

The Max Weber Programme is the largest postdoctoral programme in the Social and Human Sciences in the world. This blog has been created as a platform for EUI Postdoc Fellows to outline their research interests and express their views on current events and academic debates.


Is there an aesthetic of academic practice?

If you had to think about what we do as academics, how we behave, dress, the way we present our material, both in person and on paper, could you think of certain trends and norms? The answer is most probably ‘yes.’ On May 27th we held an interdisciplinary workshop at the EUI to discuss our craft and our role as academics. We did so especially by focusing on the aesthetics of our practice, asking questions about how it is we fashion ourselves and our work as academics.


UN Women: 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)

As the delegate of an NGO I participated in the CSW at the United Nations headquarters in New York, USA from 16 March to 20 March 2015. The conference brought together world leaders, advocates, policymakers, journalists, researchers and young people to strategize and discuss how much – or how little – progress has been made since the first declaration on the status of women made in Beijing in 1995.
