Instagram Channel “Postmigrant Europe”

What is the Instagram channel about?

The Instagram channel provides a digital exchange platform on the realities of postmigrant life on a European level. In addition to the presentation of European, migrant and diasporic associations/organizations/media-makers, the interaction of low-threshold access to (scientific) concepts by scientists, cultural workers, activists and journalists is intended to enable an understanding of the complexity of post-migrant societies and the inequality ideologies that persist in them and to bring them into the European context.
Various formats will be used on the channel, such as digital lectures with inputs from leading academics, infoclips and interviews on IG-TV with authors, journalists, media makers as well as webinars, teachings and recommendations.

What topics are covered?

Self-image as (post-)migrant society(s) and postcolonial perspectives on Europe;
Alliances (e.g. Muslim-Jewish) against group-focused misanthropy (racism against black people, anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim racism);
Ideologies of inequality within migrant and non-migrant communities in Europe and how tolerance of ambiguity and difference-sensitive knowledge and action can be taught as competences for pluralistic societies in Europe.

Who does it address?

Through the Instagram channel, which will be used as an exchange and learning platform in English (or other European languages with English subtitles) in 2020, post-migrant, post-colonial and marginalised perspectives on Europe, e.g. of Black people, BIPoCs, refugees, Roma and Sinti or queer people with an immigration history, will be made visible. It should offer a platform to interested young peers and multipliers in education and various media workers and be thematically shaped in a joint exchange.

In 2021, an educational journey with 10 young Europeans to the Netherlands and Belgium is planned. The young people will get the chance to meet with initiatives, associations and scientists who tackle these issues in their respective local contexts. A part of the group will later also engage in the design of educational materials for contexts of non-formal education.

The project is funded by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (BpB).
