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.
