There have been very few updates for this page lately, due to various reasons. We have therefor decided to stop posting here and instead use our Facebook page. You find us at “Master’s Programme in Applied Cultural Analysis, Lund University”. Many of the MACA classes during the years since we started the programme in 2008 have or have had their own groups, which are sometimes closed. But this is the official page and it is open for all: previous, current and future MACA-students, as well as other curious and interested people. Welcome!
Here are a couple of seminars that may be of interest to some of you current or previous MACA-students:

Seminar with Valdimar Hafstein, University of Iceland and President of SIEF. Monday 29 February at 13.15 in room LUX:C436.
Working with photographs, films, and textual traces, this lecture considers how heritage is embodied. How are bodies of heritage constituted, disciplined, carried, experienced, felt? How are temporal relationships inscribed on bodies? The focus is on a traditional form of wrestling, “glíma”, declared Iceland’s national sport in the early year of the 20th century. Glíma wrestling offers a vantage point on the body techniques involved in the formation of modern national subjects and their relationship to time. Relying on rich visual evidence, the lecture analyzes the sculpting of male bodies through glíma wrestling within two distinct regimes of value: national culture in the early 20th century and cultural heritage in the early 21st century.
Here is a seminar by Chia-Ling Yang, assistant professor at the Graduate Institute of Gender Equity Education at National Kaohsiung Normal University in Taiwan. It’s in English and open for all.
Racism experienced and demonstrated by Chinese-speaking migrants in Sweden
This presentation aims to explore racism that Chinese-speaking migrants in Sweden experience in their processes of migration as well as racism they demonstrate against other migrant groups in Sweden. By exposing the linkage between processes of othering among migrants and racist discourses in Sweden, the speaker tries to unfold the limit of certain resistance against racism among migrants and try to find alternatives to combat racism in Swedish society
Date: 9 March 15.15-17.00
Place: Room 221, Department of Gender Studies, Allhelgona Kyrkogata 14M, Lund
