Dear colleagues, dear students,

the  Margherita von Brentano Center for Gender Studies, the Master Gender, Intersektionalität und Politik and the  Toolbox Gender und Diversity in der Lehre at Freie Universität Berlin are organizing for this Winter Term 2021-2022, the online series „Diversity, Racism and the Broken Promise of Inclusion in German Higher Education“ (ENG/DE).

This series of events aims at contributing to the debates around racism and diversity in German Higher Education from a variety of perspectives that include the possibilities and limits of intersectional data collection for making exclusion mechanisms visible; the relationship between the non-inclusive vision of excellence and diversity; the saliency of selected elements of internationalization in relation to diversity and the possibilities that the classroom might be a learning space as well as a safe space and a space of resistance.

More Info about the Program:

We will start with a Keynote by Nirmal Puwar (Goldsmiths, University of London) on the topic: Space Invaders: Race, Gender and Bodies Out of Place (ENG) on Thursday, November 4 from 4pm to 6 pm (CET).
