Time: 18:15–19:45

Loca­tion: Rotunde (U Bre­men) and zoom

Dis­cus­sion with
Dr. Giu­lia Pelil­lo-Hes­ter­mey­er (U Hei­del­berg)
Dr. Deb­o­rah Nyan­gu­lu (U Bre­men)

Chair: Hagen Stein­hauer (RG Soft Authoritarianisms)

The first dis­cus­sion in WoC’s new Ago­ra for­mat will focus on the exclu­sion­ary effects of con­tem­po­rary dis­cours­es and pol­i­tics of inclu­sion. Tak­ing the glob­al­iza­tion and medi­a­ti­za­tion of the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment as a start­ing point, the event will dis­cuss tran­scul­tur­al nego­ti­a­tions of anti-racism against the back­drop of dif­fer­ent colo­nial his­to­ries. The two dis­cus­sants will approach these ques­tions from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­pli­nary stand­points, includ­ing lin­guis­tics, tran­scul­tur­al­ism, and African Euro­pean Studies.

The aim of Ago­ra is to think togeth­er and fur­ther aca­d­e­m­ic exchanges across dis­ci­pli­nary boundaries.
