The Oceans as Archives conference contributes to the growing field of critical ocean studies, while intervening in the erasures and occlusions performed in scripting the field as a new terrain of inquiry. This three-day interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars, poets, artists, and activists to share and discuss work that centers the ocean as a source of knowledge and a method for thinking, writing, and critical praxis. The conference provides a space for sharing ideas and theories anchored in the longstanding critical traditions of Black (diaspora) studies, Pacific Islander studies, Critical Indigenous studies, Caribbean philosophy, postcolonial theory, and decolonial and anticolonial critique. There will be panel discussions, film screenings, poetry readings, performances, visual art, workshops, and conference papers. The conference will take place from 4 – 6 July 2022 at the University of Amsterdam. We are honored to announce that Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs will present the keynote lecture entitled “Relevant is Different Points on a Circle”: Audre Lorde and the Ocean Blue.” The keynote lecture will take place on July 5th and will be virtual.

After the success of the first OSL PhD day last year, we are excited to announce that the upcoming OSL PhD day will take place on Thursday 19 May 2022. The day’s theme will be “Making Stories Work” and the keynote lecture will be given by Professor Clare Hemmings. After Hemmings’ lecture, the program will consist of two panels, each made up of three fifteen minute presentations on your work in progress. This means that six of you will have the opportunity to present.
The OSL seed money grant aims to foster collaboration within and beyond the OSL community. The OSL Board will make € 1000,- available as seed money for the most promising initiative.

In the coming months, there will be changes in the student representation at the School Board, also due to one of your representatives completing her PhD trajectory.
In this regard, we will run elections for a newly created Student Board (Student Raad) following the new guidelines for national research schools. The Student Board will consist of two PhD candidates and two ReMA students who will liaise with the OSL Management Team and the OSL School Board.
Dear Students and Colleagues,
From OSL, we hope you enjoyed a great summer holiday. Over the last months, we have been working hard to make sure you will benefit from a new exciting academic year despite all the challenges we face ahead due to the ongoing pandemic.
