Guest researchers

Our faculty has funded three guest researcher, for a period of one month each. Juliet Hess at HSM, Christina Ouzounidis and Jyoti Mistry at Valand Academy.

Christina Ouzounidis (Literary Composition) in January 2018. In her new project, Christina Ouzounidis, takes an interest in the possibilities of the unresponsive, of an utterance which turns away, of pause, caesura, silence as in (the right to) remain silent. Ouzounidis connects this unresponsiveness to the Greek understanding of idiocy, a term which (in Ouzounidi’s interpretation of it) proposes a turning away from imperatives and questions. In a time when quick answers are being asked for, unresponsiveness and idiocy can be important artistic and scientific tools to investigate. For researchers in Literary Composition, among which Valand’s research themes experimental materialisms and intersectional practices are in focus, the topics raised by Ouzounidis work are essential, and we are very hopeful regarding collaborations with her based on both research and pedagogical challenges.

Jyoti Mistry (Film) in November 2017 .Professor Jyoti Mistry has a Ph.D. in Cinema Studies from 2002. Being both a filmmaker and a theorist, Mistry’s approach to filmmaking is coupled with a commitment to a theoretical investigation of ideas. Mistry’s work as a (South African) filmmaker is often inspired by historical and political contexts and seeks to question dominant representations by exploring counter-hegemonic narrative strategies. Her work falls in to the research theme of Valand Academy: Intersectional practices – which includes work on queer, feminist and decolonial politics and culture, questions of care and social justice. Professor Jyoti Mistry especially contributes with expertise in decolonial politics.

Juliet Hess (music) 25 sep–22 October 2017. Juliet is a researcher and teacher at College of Music, Michigan State University, were she teaches and research about music and education I relation to questions about social equality and ethics. Juliete will primary work with our researchers and doctor students in the pedagogical field and our colleges at world music. She will also participate in HSMs research collegium, doctor seminars and workshops with our students in teaching. Read more about Juliet Hess here
