Prof. Paul Gilroy eerste hoogleraar Vrede van Utrecht-leerstoel
'De Europese gemeenschap is geobsedeerd door veiligheid en is bang voor anderen/andersdenkenden'
Prof. Paul Gilroy (1956) is de eerste hoogleraar die de nieuwe Vrede van Utrecht-leerstoel gaat bekleden bij de Universiteit Utrecht. Deze leerstoel richt zich op het in stand houden van het gedachtegoed van de Vrede van Utrecht die in 1713 werd gesloten.
Prof. Gilroy gaat in zijn eerste publieke lezing, op woensdag 16 september 2009, onder andere in op de erfenis van het Europese kolonialisme, het blijvende effect hiervan op de huidige Europese samenleving en de huidige obsessie met veiligheid en angst voor anderen/andersdenkenden. In andere seminars gaat hij in op status van de huidige debatten over 'etnisch anderen' in sociale en culturele theorie.
Paul Gilroy is professor in de sociale theorie aan de London School of Economics and Political Science. Hij is vooral bekend als wetenschappelijk geschiedschrijver over de cultuur, de ethische en politieke waarden van de Afrikaanse diaspora. Zijn visie hierop heeft een grote impact gehad op publieke debatten over de politieke bewustwording van de zwarte bevolking in de jaren negentig in Engeland. Gilroy gaf enkele jaren les aan Yale University en is actief geweest in het artistieke en culturele leven in London, waarin hij ook samenwerkte met het stadsbestuur.
Paul Gilroy is naast hoogleraar ook specialist op het gebied van muziekcultuur. Muziek is erg belangrijk voor Gilroy, niet alleen vanwege de populaire status, maar ook 'om de betekenis die taal en tekst hebben als uitingen van menselijk bewustzijn'. Na afloop van de lezing op woensdag 16 september zal Gilroy een gesprek houden met muziekjournalist Stan Rijven over 'muziek in de globaliserende wereld'. Aansluitend is er een optreden van C-mon en Kypski.
De Vrede van Utrecht die in 1713 is gesloten, wordt gezien als de start van de moderne diplomatie. In 2013 wordt 300 jaar Vrede van Utrecht gevierd. Om de relevantie van de Vrede van Utrecht in huidig Europees en internationaal perspectief te plaatsen, is een Vrede van Utrecht-leerstoel opgericht. Tot aan 2013 zullen verschillende hoogleraren de leerstoel bekleden. De leerstoel wordt ondergebracht bij het Centre for the Humanities van de faculteit Geesteswetenschappen van de Universiteit Utrecht.
De Vrede van Utrecht-leerstoel is een initiatief van Provinciale Staten van de provincie Utrecht en wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Universiteit Utrecht, stichting Vrede van Utrecht en provincie Utrecht.
Het curriculum vitae van Paul Gilroy is als attachment bijgevoegd.

OTHER WORK EXPERIENCE
From January 1982 until August 1985, I worked as a research officer in the Greater London Council (GLC). I have also been employed as a journalist, researcher, and musician. Since gaining a full-time academic post, I have combined my work as a teacher and researcher with a subsidiary career as a freelance journalist specialising in the literature, music and expressive cultures of the African diaspora. This has involved me in writing for New Musical Express; The Wire, where I had a regular column from 1988-1991; The New Internationalist; The Encyclopaedia of Rock; New Statesman and Society and City Limits where I was also a contributing editor between 1982 and 1984. I have written book reviews, comment pieces and other short essays on a variety of cultural and political topics for The Guardian , The Observer , The Chronicle of Higher Education, Sight and Sound, Jewish Socialist, Casablanca, New Statesman, New Society, Race Today, Race and Class, Searchlight, Marxism Today, ZG, The Times Higher Education Supplement, The Times Literary Supplement and Emergency where I was a founding member of the editorial collective.
In 1980, I worked jointly with Valerie Amos on a research study of ethnic minorities and adult education in the Birmingham area for an A.C.A.C.E. project supervised by Prof. Alan Little of Goldsmiths' College. In 1985 I sat on the West Midlands County Council Panel of Enquiry into the Handsworth disorders and co-authored a report into these events which was published in 1986 under the title 'A Different Reality'. I have also worked as a freelance film researcher and consultant on a number of projects for the BBC, for independent film makers and film workshops. These have included 'Territories' (Sankofa 1983), 'Handsworth Songs' (Black Audio Film Collective for Channel 4 (1986), 'The People's Account' Ceddo for Channel 4 (1986), 'The Black and White Pirate Show' Birmingham Film Workshop for Channel 4 (1987) 'Mr. Magic Feet' (BBC 1987) 'Step Forward' Albany Video for Channel 4 (1988) 'The Divided Kingdom' HTV for Channel 4 (1988), 'Young Soul Rebels' Sankofa/BFI (1991) "Darker Shade of Black" Black Audio/Normal/BBC 2 (1994), "Frantz Fanon" BBC 2/Normal (1995) and "In the Blood" BBC2 (1996).
OTHER RELEVANT EXPERIENCE
Between 2002 and 2004 I worked with a team from the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin to curate a multi-disciplinary festival of the black Atlantic. This was held between September and November 2004. I sit on the council of Tate Modern, am a trustee of Open Democracy, and currently I belong to the editorial boards of Senses and Society, Cultural Studies, Social Identities, Young (Nordic Journal of Youth Research) and the internet-based journal of political theory Theory/Event. In late 1995 I co-curated a small show, "Picturing Blackness: the subject of race in British art" with Virginia Button at the Tate Gallery.
My current research interests lie in three principal areas.
1] Political sociology and political theory.
This element of my current research is concerned with relationships between multiculturalism, hierarchy, difference and the elaboration of non-racial democracy. The local dimension is complemented by an exploration of the dimensions of black European identity and the cultural and political resources necessary for the development and sustenance of a Europe-wide anti-racist movement. I have become particularly interested in the relationship between sovereign territory, ethnic and national consciousness. This work also extends already published material on the history of maritime cultures and on the opposition between land and sea. I see this aspect of my work as an ongoing intervention in contemporary debates over globalisation and the complex life of trans-local political communities.
2] The development of black vernacular and popular cultures especially literature, music and the social relations that support it. This strand of my work has drawn me into writing a book length manuscript entitled Real Time: skill, technology and desire in twentieth century black music(s). It is a history of black musics in the second half of the twentieth century in which technology, memory and trans-cultural relationships provide the central themes. This project is entangled with a wider contentious commentary on the difficult history of consumer cultures and their relationship to the lives of black populations in the United States and Britain.
3] Histories of colonial statecraft.
I intend to produce a book length manuscript on the workings of colonial governance that will depart from and engage with debates between African political theorists particularly Achille Mbembe and Mahmood Mamdani but extend their focus into a consideration of the emergent post-colonial order at national and supra-national levels. Key themes in this work are the emergence of states and spaces of exception within globalised culture and institutions, the history of the legal codes that determine patterns of human expendability and death with impunity and a critique of those versions of humanitarianism that exclude any consideration of colonial rule.
