Research Grant for Sruti Bala
News from Jul 20, 2017
Former IRC-Fellow Sruti Bala received a research grant from the Netherlands Scientific Organisation (NWO) for a five-year project titled “Cultural Practices of Citizenship under Conditions of Fragmented Sovereignty: Gendered and Sexual Citizenship in the Dutch Caribbean” in co-operation with the University of Curaçao.
The project asks how citizenship in the islands is practiced and culturally articulated by subjects facing multiple forms of systemic inequalities. It aims to add fresh insights to the study of citizenship in the Dutch Caribbean since the constitutional reforms of 2010, investigating the role of cultural practices of sexual minorities in forging the islands’ sovereignty.
We would like to sincerely congratulate Sruti Bala and wish her a great success for her research project.
